A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. It can be compared to a window that is frosted or fogged with steam. Common symptoms of a cataract include a slow, painless blurring of vision, light sensitivity or increased problems with glare, poor night vision, or fading or yellowing of colors. The most common cause of cataracts is related to the aging process of the eye. Cataracts can also be caused by medical problems such as diabetes or long-term use of medications like oral steroids.

Surgery is the only way your doctor can remove the cataract. If your symptoms are mild, a change of glasses may be all that is needed to improve your vision. There are no medications, dietary supplements or exercises that have been proven to prevent or cure cataracts.
