What is a cataract?

What is a cataract?

Cataracts develop in some people as part of the aging process. Cataracts are a jelly like substance that can create vision problems, by causing a "cloudiness" of the vision.

I encourage all senior citizens to get yearly eye exams by an optician.

Cataracts can require surgery. If ignored, serious problems with the eyes can occur, especially if the person has Diabetes.
