Cataracts: Questions About Surgery
British Columbia Specific Information
Cataracts is a condition where the lens of your eye becomes cloudy. Your vision becomes hazy, darker, and less colourful. You may also experience vision loss. Cataracts are usually caused by aging, and may become more common around the age of 50. Cataracts can also be caused by trauma to your eye or diabetes.
