What is a Cataract?

What is a Cataract?

The condition

Cataracts are a condition where the lens of your eye becomes cloudy, causing your vision to become foggy, hazy, and more sensitive to glare. 

What causes it 

While cataracts are commonly associated with aging, they can also be triggered by various factors like trauma, certain diseases, family history, and medical conditions like diabetes. 

Other factors

In some cases, the use of medications like steroids, exposure to radiation, or prolonged unprotected sunlight exposure can contribute to cataract development. Additionally, previous eye surgeries can sometimes lead to cataracts. 

Good to know

Cataracts do not spread from one eye to the other, and they are not a cause of irreversible blindness. In fact, once your cataract is removed, your vision can significantly improve.

We’re here to guide you through the process of cataract treatment to help restore your visual clarity. 


Regular eye exams and symptoms

These can help catch the early signs of cataracts, which can sometimes be difficult to recognize. It is recommended you schedule an exam and cataract evaluation if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Cloudy vision
  • Halos around lights
  • Light sensitivity
  • Difficulty seeing at night
  • Double vision in one eye
  • Seeing faded colors
  • Frequent changes in glasses or contact lens prescriptions



The good news is that cataracts are treatable. Cataract surgery is a safe procedure that replaces the cloudy, natural lens with a clear, synthetic intraocular lens (IOL), restoring the patient’s vision. The natural lens of the eye is encased by a clear, elastic-like capsular bag. When performing cataract surgery, the front portion of the capsule is opened, allowing removal of the cloudy center. After removing the cloudy center, the IOL is positioned inside the clear capsule bag, which encases and holds the new IOL. Patients can resume most normal activities and occupational obligations the day following their procedure.
