A 35-year-old member asked:

Ophthalmology 23 years experience
Cataract appearance: With a slit lamp (the microscope at the ophthalmologist's) cataract is very easy to see as a clouding of the natural lens. From the patient's perspective it is a very gradually progressing film over the vision and glare from lights. Patients sometimes describe it as "looking through cheeseclothe." the term cataract means waterfall, presumably as if you're looking through a waterfall.
A 44-year-old member asked:

Lensectomy cataract: They are the same procedure (remove lens and replace with artificial lens). The issue is the indication and insurance coverage. Cataract surgery is generally an insurance covered service because the clouded lens limits visual potential (considered a medical condition). Lensectomy is non-covered because it is done to reduce the need for glasses(elective).
A 41-year-old female asked:

Uveitis treatments: Initial treatments for uveitis are topical steroids. Other immune supressants may be necessary. Recurrent episodes may require rheumatologic evaluation / testing and, depending on results possible systemic immunosupression.
