In brief: Yes with surgery

Cataract surgery (CS) is #1 cause of world blindness & most common surgery performed in world & US.
Complication risk very low; best time in history to have CS. If no underlying retinal, optic nerve, brain issues, >90% achieve 20/20 vision after surgery; may still need glasses (depends on implant choice); curable at even advanced stages; more info: eyedoc2020.blogspot.com

In brief: Yes

Prolonged uv (sunlight) exposure has been linked to many conditions for skin cancer to premature wrinkling, to cataracts and pterygium.
Uv or other types of cataracts can be readily treated with cataract surgery.
