A cataract is an opacity that clouds the natural lens inside the eye. Normally the path of light to the retina (where the light sensors are) is as clear as possible. When proteins that make up the lens clump together, the resulting cataract blocks some of the light, making vision blurry or hazy. Cataracts typically occur more frequently in the aging population, however there are many other factors such as family history, diabetes, long term UV exposure, or certain medications like steroids that can cause cataracts. During cataract surgery, the natural lens of the eye is removed and replaced with an intraocular lens, or an IOL. These cataract lenses are designed to restore and correct vision for those suffering from cataracts.
