The lens is a transparent structure in the eye. It works along with your cornea to focus light onto your retinal and allow for you to see images. As you mature, your lens also matures causing for it to become yellow and opaque. The yellowing of the lens will affect the way light is focused and will cause for your vision to be blurry. As the lens continues to yellow and become even more opaque, less and less light can pass through causing for your eyeglass prescription to become worse.
Cataracts affect over 80 percent of adults over age 60. Generally, cataracts are caused by old age. However, cataracts can also be caused by other things like trauma, certain medications, and diabetes.
