The Effect of Cataracts

Cataracts robs its subjects with an ease of life. It makes their vision severely impaired through blurring, fogging, and clouding up one’s vision. The healthy human eye functions much like a camera. (Or perhaps vice versa) Light rays enter through the eye and pass through the cornea, transparent fluid in the front of the eye called the aqueous humor, and then the pupil which goes into the lens. The lens then bends the light rays to focus the objects you’re looking at onto the retina lining the back of the eye. From there, the image is processed into the brain to compose what you’re looking at.

A buildup of protein in the lens causes it to be cloudy. The buildup causes keeps light from clearly passing through the lens, which effects the vision of the subject. This buildup is called Cataracts.
