Cataract Vision
What is Cataracts?
In the human eye, there is a lens that adjusts to focus an image on the retina so that we can see clearly at a range of distances. When this lens becomes cloudy due to aging or injury, it is called cataracts. The clouding of the lens blocks light from passing through and prevents a sharply defined image from reaching your retina. As a result, your vision becomes blurred and appears foggy.
