Nearly everyone knows that cataracts are the effect of the normal process of aging. However, it is an equally important fact that cataracts occur early in the Indian population. And, yes, early onset can be prevented or delayed.
P.Kanthamani of Krishna Eye and ENT Hospital, explains that a cataract occurs when the transparent lens (similar to the lens of a camera which enables vision) becomes opaque. The most common cataract is senile cataract – that occurs with age, but it is now occurring at an earlier age, she says. By blocking the source of light that enters the eye, it will cause cloudy or foggy vision and glare.
