Light passes through the lens in our eyes and gets focused on the retina to allow us to see the objects in front of us. Over time, this lens can naturally become cloudy or foggy, making what is seen appear blurry, hazy and dull in color. This is a natural part of aging and referred to as Cataracts. Cataracts prevent light and images from reaching the retina and thus resulting in the following Symptoms:                                   
●    Blurry vision
●    Seeing two images or double vision
●    Poor night vision
●    Sensitivity to light
●    Trouble seeing in low light or at night
●    Bright colors appear washed out and faded

Causes of cataracts

For many people, age is the most common cause of cataracts. Around the age of 40, proteins begin to break down in the lens due to normal eye changes. As the protein breaks down over time, it can cause the lens to become cloudy due to the lack of light that is able to pass through the lens to the retina. The small amount of light that reaches the retina to develop an image is diffused and scattered, hence creating a cloudy image. Around the age of 55 is when people start to notice a difference in their vision. Additional causes of cataracts are:
●    Family members who have had cataracts
●    Having diabetes or other medical problems, such as glaucoma and hyperthyroidism
●    Spending extended periods of time in the sun without sunglasses
●    Eye injury, eye surgery, or treatments with radiation to the upper body
