Our eyes, over time, starts to lose its ability to see things as clearly as it used to. Factors such as age, lifestyle and other reasons such as a medical condition will have adverse effects on the eye. The lens that lies behind the iris and the pupil are highly essential to our vision. They tend to act like a camera lens, helping light to focus on the retina at the back of the eye, a place where the image of what we see gets recorded. This lens also lets the eye adjust its focus, helping to see things clearly (far and short). These lenses are made up entirely of water and protein, and its the particular arrangement of this protein that helps in keeping the glass clear and lets the required light pass through it.
The protein present here starts to clump together and creates a small cloud like area on the lens, a condition known as cataracts. This cataract tends to grow larger with time and thus clouding more area of the lens, which results in making it difficult for the person to see things.
