What is a Cataract?
A cataract is a loss of transparency, or clouding, of the normally clear lens of
the eye. This lens is a part of the eye that helps focus light on the retina. It
is located behind the iris. The term cataract is derived from the Greek word cataractos,
which describes rapidly running water. When water is turbulent, it is transformed
from a clear medium to white and cloudy. Cataract development is usually a very
gradual process of normal aging but can occasionally occur rapidly. Many people
are in fact unaware that they have cataract because the changes in their vision
have been so gradual. Cataract commonly affect both eyes, but it is not uncommon
for cataract in one eye to advance more rapidly. Some children develop cataract,
called congenital cataract, before or just after birth; these are usually dealt
with differently from cataract in adults.
