The lenses inside your eyes are normally clear. However, sometimes areas of the lenses in your eyes can become cloudy. These cloudy areas of the lenses inside your eyes are called cataracts. Cataracts can develop in one eye or in both and as they develop, you might not even notice them. However, in time, cataracts can and will affect your vision. The clouded vision caused by cataracts can make it very difficult to do everyday activities such as reading and driving. Once the condition begins to interfere with your ability to perform these tasks, surgery might be necessary. It is very important that you go to an experienced ophthalmologist if you suspect that you have cataracts.
