A cataract, in simple words, can be defined as the clouding of the eye lens. The lens of the eye through which the light passes lies behind the iris (the coloured part). The lens is transparent and helps in focusing the light that enters our eye. In cataract, the lens becomes misty or cloudy resulting in partial or complete vision impairment. One or both the eyes are affected by cataract.
Sometimes new glasses may improve the eyesight to an extent for a limited period. But if the cataract is too advanced, glasses may not help. The only treatment for cataract is an operation to restore eyesight.
