Cataracts are very common; it’s estimated around 2.5 million people aged over 65 have cataracts and it’s the main cause of impaired vision worldwide.
When cloudy patches appear in your vision, it prevents the light from extending to the back of your eyes which can cause impaired vision. A common misconception is that the cataract is like a “film” or “skin” that has grown over the eye, and this simply is not true. The fact is, if you’re suffering from a cataract, then the lens itself has gone cloudy. Causes for cataracts can vary but you may be at higher risk if you’re over 60, have trauma in the eye, diabetes and sometimes genetics can be a factor.
