Each eye has a “lens” which lies behind the iris and the pupil. It works much like a camera lens, focusing light onto the retina at the back of the eye, and it adjusts the eye's focus, letting us see things clearly near and far away.
A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s lens – which initially can bother you with a little blurred vision. Many people say that for a time it is like looking through a dirty window. People with diabetes seem to have a higher risk factor for cataracts, but as we age, many people without any obvious risk factors develop cataracts.
Cataract screening is painless, fast and easy.
