Cataracts

 

A cataract is an opacity that develops in the lens of the eye or in its envelope. Age-related cataract may result in increased power of the crystalline lens, causing near-sightedness [myopia]. It can also lead to gradual yellowing and opacification of the lens; reducing the perception of blue colours. Untreated Cataracts can cause vision loss and blindness.

Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in the world. In the United States, age-related lenticular changes have been reported in:

  • 42% of those between the ages of 52 to 64
  • 60% of those between the ages 65 and 74, and
  • 91% of those between the ages of 75 and 85

 

Causes Of Cataracts

Cataracts develop from a variety of reasons, including:

  • long-term ultraviolet exposure
  • exposure to radiation
  • secondary effects of diseases such as diabetes
  • advanced age
  • genetic factors are often a cause of congenital cataracts - predisposing someone to cataracts at an earlier age

Cataracts may also be produced by eye injury or physical trauma.
