Cataract Formation Video

In the healthy eye the lens is clear and allows light rays to pass through unobstructed. As a cataract forms, the lens gradually becomes cloudy. As light passes through this cloudy lens it is no longer clearly focused on the retina causing images to appear hazy or blurred.
