“Cataracts”, what exactly is a Cataract?
The simple answer is a cataract is a cloudy lens. The lens is a marble-like structure in the middle of our eye, that sits right behind the iris, which helps us to see. When we are young, it is typically really clear, as we age, the proteins inside the lens start to clump together, making it appear cloudy and yellow. Cataracts are always screened for at your eye exam.
