Basically, a cataract is a clouding of natural lens. The protein accumulation in the lens makes this cloudy condition and avoids passing of light clearly which results into vision loss. Humans have a natural clean and clear lens from their birth to see the world but with the age and other factors such as injury or long working pressure on eyes gradually these lens becomes cloudy. To make the vision clear and better it is recommended to remove cataract and replaced with an artificial lens through surgery.
Ageing is the main cause of the cataract. With the age, the protein present in the lens breaks and makes lens rigid and cloudy. The other causes include:
- Long time exposure of naked eyes to x-rays or sun rays
- High level of Diabetes
- Thyroid disease such as hyperthyroidism
- Any kind of eye injury
- Inflammation in Iris
- Genetic disorders such as myotonic dystrophy, down syndrome etc.
- Feel haloes nearby the bright light or objects
- Loss in night vision
- Temporary perfection in closer vision
- Requirement of bright light
