As you age, you will probably develop cataracts, but how can you prevent them? While cataracts manifest for a variety of reasons, the symptoms are a result of protein deposits on the lens of the eye that distort incoming light. This alters vision in a variety of ways including blurriness, double vision, color change, or progressive nearsightedness.
Causes and Risk Factors
Smoking, ultraviolet radiation, hormone treatment, or physical damage to the eye are the primary external risk factors for cataracts.
