In brief: The visual system

Cataracts are a loss of clarity in the natural lens in the eye.
They occur in everyone eventually and affect overall vision. Cataracts are the leading cause of reversible blindness worldwide. If cataracts are left too long, vision can be severely limited which can make daily tasks more difficult.
