A cataract is one of the most common eye issue causing impaired vision world wide. It occurs when the natural eye lens becomes dim or hazy and the focus of light on the retina (the sensory layer) gets hindered, hence blocking clear vision. The degree of cataract increases with the advancing years. Cataract can be treated with a straightforward surgery, with a success rate of 95%.
