Cataracts are when the lens in your eye develops cloudy patches causing your visions to become blurred. You’re more likely to have cataracts as you get older. In the UK, age-related cataracts affect around half of people over 65.

As cataracts form over a long period of time you may not notice any symptoms at first. But gradually you’ll experience blurred vision, trouble with bright light or glare and sometimes seeing colours especially blue which can seem faded.

The only way to treat a cataract is to replace your cloudy lens with an artificial one. This is easily done with modern surgical techniques.
