In brief: Nuclear sclerosis

This term means "hardening of the center of the lens".
This is a natural aging process. It wiil, in time lead to cataract formation. However, this could take upto 10-20 years depending on other medical conditions and genetics.

Nuclear Sclerosis is not associated with multiple sclerosis

In brief: Not associated

Nuclear sclerosis is a description of your cataract.
A cataract is a clouding or opacification of the lens (nucleus in your case) inside your eye, this can result in decreased vision with time. A cataract typically will progress with age and worsen due to sun, tobacco, steroid meds, surgery, trauma, and eye inflammation. It is not typically associated with ms. See your eye doctor for eval.
