Cataracts are a common ocular condition in which the lens inside of the eye becomes clouded. Cataracts are more common as age increases and are known to be related to exposure to UV light from the sun. Wearing sunglasses starting at a young age has been shown to help prevent cataracts. Cataracts can also be caused by some medications and systemic medical conditions. Symptoms of cataracts include blurred vision even with optimal glasses prescription, increased glare at night time, and decreasing night vision.
