(Source:NEI) A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision. Most cataracts are related to aging. Cataracts are very common in older people. By age 80, more than half of all Americans either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery.
A cataract can occur in either or both eyes. It cannot spread from one eye to the other.

Your eyes are an important part of your health.
Most people rely on their Eyes to see and make sense of the world around them. But some Eye Diseases can lead to vision loss, so it is important to identify and treat eye diseases as early as possible.
You should get your eyes checked (by an Eye Doctor) as often as your health care provider recommends it, or if you have any new vision problems. And just as it is important to keep your body healthy, you also need to keep your eyes healthy.
