Cataracts refer to a clouding of the cornea lens or clear covering of the eye that
focuses light rays onto the center of your retina. This video examines
some of the main causes and symptoms of cataracts.
Cataracts may be a result of the normal aging process, direct trauma to
the eye, genetics, sun exposure, and exposure to high doses of radiation.
Individuals with diabetes and those taking certain medications, including
corticosteroids, may also be at an increased risk for cataracts. Common
symptoms of cataracts include blurred or hazy vision, difficulty driving
at night, frequent prescription changes, and increased glare or halos
