WHAT IS A CATARACT?

A cataract is a natural aging process to the natural lens inside your eye. The natural lens in your eye painlessly and gradually becomes cloudy making your vision less sharp. Similar to a camera, your eye depends on a clear lens to properly focus images. A cataract can slowly make your vision cloudy, blurry or dull.
