Cataracts and Cataract Surgery
Most cataracts occur as part of the aging process, from a change in the chemical composition of the lens. They usually do not become a problem until you are in your 60s or 70s. If you live long enough, you are almost certain to develop one eventually. Some, but not all, scientists feel that prolonged exposure (over years) to sunlight can damage the lens and plays a role in cataract development. .
