A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens in the eye. Early in the development of age-related cataract, the power of the lens may be increased, causing near-sightedness (myopia – sometimes called “second sight” as the patient can now read again), and the gradual yellowing and opacification of the lens may reduce the perception of blue colors. Cataracts typically progress slowly to cause vision loss, and are potentially blinding if untreated. Trauma or long term use of oral steroids can cause cataracts to develop more rapidly. The condition usually affects both eyes, but most often one eye is affected earlier than the other.
