The clouding of the lens of the eye is known as a “cataract.” This clouding often causes myopia (shortsightedness). Cataracts most often occur due to aging; as we age, lens proteins begin to denature and degrade causing deposits to build up in the lens of the eye.

Surgery (outpatient) is the most common treatment for cataracts.
