  • Clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye.
  • Treatable by a medical professional
  • Requires a medical diagnosis
  • Lab tests or imaging not required
  • Chronic: can last for years or be lifelong
  • Most cataracts develop slowly over the course of years.
  • The main symptom is blurry vision. Having cataracts can be like looking through a cloudy window.
  • When a cataract interferes with someone’s usual activities, the cloudy lens can be replaced with a clear, artificial lens. This is generally a safe, outpatient procedure.
