What are cataracts..?

 What are cataracts..? Cataracts are a disease of the eye which causes the lens inside the eye to go cloudy; normally the lens in the eye is clear, but as cataracts develop it becomes opaque and cloudy. A good analogy is to liken this to a glass which has been put through a dishwasher too many times and becomes frosted. In the same way, when you have cataracts your vision will appear as if you are looking through a frosted glass or a dirty windscreen. As cataracts mature, they can be seen as a clouding of the eye and this reduces the ability of light to pass through into the eye which causes a degradation to the person's eyesight and things appear much less clear.

The function of the lens inside of the eye is to focus the rays of light entering the eye onto the retina; the light-sensitive tissue located at the rear of the eye which transmits signals to the brain. The front parts of the eye, in front of the retina, including the lens, have to be perfectly transparent and clear so that light can reach the retina within the eye without obstruction. Light hitting the retina causes a chemical reaction to take place which generates minute electrical impulses that are transmitted to the mid-brain where they are then processed and translated into what we all perceive as our vision.

In a healthy normal eye, the light easily travels through the unclouded clear lens to the retina situated below. When the lens is clouded by cataracts this hinders the normal passage of light to the retina and thus the resultant image hitting the retina will be blurred and so, in exactly the same way, the vision itself will also be blurred. Depending upon how severely the lens has become clouded by cataracts, this will determine the extent to which the vision will be disrupted and impaired.

Age-related cataracts are the most common form and they are usually referred to as senile cataracts. Other causes of cataracts include; traurma induced by injury, congenital cataracts, drug induced and diabetes. Cataracts are very common among the elderly and, by the age of eighty, more than fifty percent of all Americans will have either developed at least some degree of cataracts, or will have already have undergone cataract surgery or treatment. By the age of ninety-five, virtually all Americans will have experienced cataracts.

Cataracts can occur in either one or in both eyes and people who develop cataracts in one eye will usually eventually develop cataracts in the other eye as well. Cataracts are not infectious or contagious and they cannot be transmitted from one eye to another eye or from one person too another. The only really noticeable effects of cataracts are diminished and clouded vision; they are not painful or itchy and they do not cause any redness or swelling of the eye.

Different types of cataracts

Cataracts can affect different areas of the lens of the eye and which area, or areas, are affected determines how they are classified and the symptoms that you will experience. Your ophthalmologist or eye specialist will give you an eye examination to determine in which area of your lens the cataracts originally started to develop and will then be able to classify it accordingly.

Some cataracts start to form around the edges of the lens and then grow in a spoke-like pattern, much like the spokes on a wheel on a bicycle. These types of cataracts are known as cortical cataracts and the main symptoms associated with these types of cataracts are usually starting to see the appearance of a ring or halo appear around lights, and increased glare sensitivity. These symptoms can be especially prominent whilst night driving and the oncoming headlights shining in your eyes bother you more than they did in the past, or when the sun is very low in the sky.

Another type of cataracts can be diagnosed by the centre part of your lens turning a yellowish-brown colour and a hardening of the lens. These types of cataracts are known as nuclear cataracts and the usual accompanying symptoms are blurred vision.

Some cataracts occur when grainy cells get in between the back of the lens and the eye capsule and these are referred to as posterior subcapsular cataracts. The usual symptoms associated with these types of cataracts are that you start to experience a bad glare from lights. Posterior subcapsular cataracts are also quite often common among younger people.

Almost one-third of all people with cataracts have a mixture of the different types listed above and, if this is the case, they are then known as mixed cataracts.

Who is at risk most of developing cataracts..?

Cataracts are extremely common and they can develop at any age but, the older you get, the greater the chances are that you will develop cataracts. In the early stages, cataracts probably won't really bother you that much, but the sooner treatment is started the easier it will be for you to clear them. The likelihood of developing cataracts are increased greatly if you smoke or if you spend a lot of time out in the sun. Other risk factors include; the prolonged use of steroidal type drugs, diabetes, having heart disease and/or high blood pressure, having a history of cataracts running in your family or, at some point in your life, getting dehydrated too much; having severe diarrhea can make you very dehydrated.

Cataracts treatment

Up until very recently, the only way to treat cataracts was by having surgery; this involved having the lens of the eye surgically removed and then having a new man-made replacement lens fitted in its place. But now there is a brand new and all natural alternative treatment to cataracts surgery using a simple course of N-Acetyl-Carnosine (or NAC for short) eye drops. These NAC eye drops are simply applied once every hour during the day and go to work immediately dissolving the cataracts and thus returning the lens back to full clarity which, in turn, restores back normal vision once again.
