What is Cataract?

Description of the disease

Cataract is a eye disease in which the lens becomes cloudy, leading to vision impairment.


  • Congenital cataract
  • Acquired cataract
  • Traumatic cataract


Symptoms of cataract include vision deterioration, double vision, changes in color perception, glare and fuzziness in the eyes.


The main causes of cataract are aging, trauma, genetic predisposition, prolonged sun exposure, eye diseases (e.g. diabetic retinopathy).


Cataract diagnosis is done through eye examination, visual acuity test, and measurement of intraocular pressure.


The only effective treatment for cataract is surgical intervention, during which the lens is replaced with an artificial one.


For cataract prevention, it is recommended to have a proper diet, protect the eyes from ultraviolet radiation, and timely treatment of eye diseases.


The doctor who diagnoses and treats cataracts is called an ophthalmologist.
