Be wise – take care of your eyes
 

Cataracts

eye with cataract and detail

A cataract is the clouding of the eye’s lens that can cause problems with vision. In the early stages, a change in the prescription in your glasses may be all that is needed. If the cataracts are not causing a problem, and you can still see well, you can continue to visit your optometrists. However, if it develops you may wish to have it removed by an operation.
