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 around lights.
