Every eye is unique in itself, its shape, curvature, eye lashes, colors etc. Just like finger prints, they define you. But its uniqueness doesn’t end with its form. Each Eye acts as a window to the mind. It captures images. These images are then transported to the vision center in our brain where they are interpreted and processed. As a result, the sight center recognizes the object. A clear lens focuses the image on the retina. The condition wherein this lens becomes cloudy is called Cataract.
Often enough, we don’t understand what our eyes needs. Eyes are effected by their physical profile, body health and most importantly, the lifestyle that the person is having. And while a cataract Is to be removed, all these three aspects need to be taken care of. A diabetic teacher might need a different approach to treat cataract than a normal-healthy teacher, because they lead completely different lifestyle. Cataract will affect each eye and individual differently. It is a no longer just a biological disease, rather a lifestyle impairment

Cataracts occur when there is a buildup of protein in the lens that makes it cloudy. This prevents light from passing clearly through the lens, causing some loss of vision. As the cataract advances the cloudiness in the eye also increases until it is treated.
A cataract is a part of ageing process. It is the most common cause of vision loss in people over age of 50. The amount and pattern of cloudiness can vary within the lens.Moreover cataract can develop cause of eye injury, presence of diabetes and usage of some medications or any other eye diseases. It is not necessary for cataract to develop only in old age only but it does develop in infants.
Cataracts usually form slowly and cause few symptoms until they noticeably block light. Symptoms may vary from individual to individual, some people may have problem with vision that is cloudy, blurry, foggy. Some may experience progressive nearsightedness in older people often called “second sight” because they may no longer need reading glasses. There might be changes in the way you see color because the discolored lens acts as a filter. You may face problems driving at night such as glare from oncoming headlights, problems with glare during the day, double vision (like a superimposed image).
