The term “cataract” refers to a clouding of the natural lens in the eye. Cataracts result in blurred vision, poor night vision and increased glare, decreased contrast, and occasional double vision. The clouding of the central portion of the natural crystalline lens occurs very slowly. Therefore, many years may separate the beginning of cataract formation and a person becoming aware that their vision is no longer satisfactory.

Cataracts are usually discovered and assessed during a routine eye examination by your eye doctor. Symptoms such as blurred vision, fading colors with inability to distinguish accurately between shades, aversion to bright lights, seeing halos around lights, and difficulty seeing at night or in low light conditions, are all signs that a cataract may have developed.

Diagnostic Tests
The diagnosis of cataracts by a doctor includes the following:

  • Visual Acuity Test: The patient is asked to read out letters from a screen at a fixed distance.
  • Visual Examination: Examination of the eye with a special lighted microscope (referred to as a slit lamp) or lens.
  • Dilated Fundus Examination: Drops are used to enlarge the pupils to enable the eye doctor to look inside the eye with a special magnifying glass, in order to examine the retina and optic nerve.
  • Tonometry: The pressure of fluid inside the eyeball is measured and recorded.

Signs of Cataracts
The natural crystalline lens begins to change color as a cataract develops. The lens acquires hues of yellow as the cataract progresses and later turns brown or brunescent. In very advanced cataracts, the color of the lens may appear white, referred to as a mature cataract.

Causes Of Cataracts
The lens of the eye is composed of a combination of water and proteins. The lens itself lacks nerves, blood vessels, or connective tissue.2 The arrangement of proteins tends to become more insoluble as we age, and the lens progressively lose its clarity and focusing (accommodative) ability. This allows less light to pass through the lens to the retina, and the vision appears blurry.

Though age is the major factor for developing cataracts, there are a host of other reasons for the lens of an eye to turn cloudy. Infants may be born with congenital (inherited by family genes) cataracts, children and adults may develop a defect in the lens after a major trauma, and exposure to certain drugs or radiation may cause cataracts to develop over time. Infection with rubella during pregnancy may lead to congenital cataracts in infancy, in addition to other systemic abnormalities. Diabetes, any type of eye surgery, and long term steroid use, can contribute to the early development of cataracts.

Unfortunately, cataracts is typically a chronic condition that ultimately requires a medical procedure at some point in time for most people.  The Cataracts Guide provides detailed information including.
