What is a Cataract?
Cataract is a very common pathology in Tukey and worldwide, it is the first cause of blindness. It is characterized by a progressive degeneration of a lens placed inside the eye. The latter is transparent in the normal state, thus allowing the focusing of the image on the retina. The loss of transparency prevents light from passing through and the image becomes fuzzy.
Cataract results in a drop in vision from far and near which is not corrected by glasses.
