What is a cataract?

A cataract is a mass of proteins that develops in the eye as we age, and occurs in one or both eyes. Our eye’s lens is mainly composed of water and proteins and as we grow older these proteins can start to cluster together and cloud up the lens, causing vision to become blurry or dull.
