ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates - Wednesday, March 2nd 2016 [ME NewsWire]

A cataract is a disease affecting the natural lens behind the pupil, where the lens becomes clouded, resulting in a painless decrease in vision. Cataract patients suffer when faced with bright lights, and struggle to see well at night. Cataracts can affect one or both eyes.

A cataract is a gradual hardening of the lens material, which causes clouding of the lens. This means that light being dispersed cannot reach the retina to be transferred to the brain. As a result, it causes blurry or darkened vision and faded colors (often appearing yellow or tanned). A cataract can temporarily improve a person’s ability to see up close, as it functions as a strong lens. This is called Secondary Vision, because people who used to use reading glasses can do without. When a cataract becomes more aggravated, people go back to wearing glasses and the vision becomes worse. Aging is the number one cause for ... Read more »
