Restore Vision of the Poor

What Is Cataract
A cataract is the clouding of the lens in the eye which leads to a decrease in vision. Symptoms may include faded colors, blurry or double vision, halos around light, trouble with bright lights, and trouble seeing at night. This may result in trouble driving, reading, or recognizing faces. Poor vision caused by cataracts may also result in an increased risk of falling and depression. Cataracts cause half of all cases of blindness and 33% of visual impairment worldwide. Cataracts are most common due to aging but it may also occur due to trauma or radiation exposure, be present from birth, or may occur after an eye surgery for other problems.
