Cataract is a clouding of the crystalline lens (just behind the iris), the part of the eye responsible for producing clear and sharp images. Normal proteins within the lens start to break down. Over time, the lens becomes cloudy, making images look blurred or fuzzy. Cataracts are a natural result of ageing, usually from around sixty years old onwards. This process is accelerated by diabetes, steroids or excessive exposure to UV light.
