The cloudy vision of cataract-compromised eyes is common in people over 40. By the age of 80, 50% of people will have cataracts. Cataracts tend to start out slowly, with vision that is just a little less sharp, but as the cataracts grow, vision becomes more and more impaired. In early stages, most patients can deal with cataracts by changing the prescription for their glasses and contacts, but the only way to stop this lens clouding is to have the cataract surgically removed and an intraocular lens (IOL) implanted in its place.
