About Cataract

Posted on October 11, 2016 Share

What is Cataract?

Cataract is a clouding of the eye’s lens as we grow older. When the lens becomes cloudy, light cannot pass through unobstructed, and so the vision becomes blur.

Vision without Cataract versus Vision with Cataractcataract


The most common symptoms of a cataract are:

  • Cloudy, blurry, or yellowing of vision.
  • Experiencing glare. For example, vision becomes blurry in bright sunlight.
  • Poor vision in dim light.


Cataract can be treated with Cataract surgery, which has a high success rate in Singapore.
