A cataract occurs when the normally clear lens in your eye becomes cloudy, eventually impairing your vision.
The most common complaint due to cataracts is blurred vision in one or both eyes. The vision may worsen slowly over months or years. Some people experience difficulty reading, especially small print. Some have trouble driving in bright sunlight or at night, especially if it’s raining. Cataracts need no treatment if you can see well enough to do all of your daily activities without difficulty.
