WHAT DOES CATARACT MEAN IN ENGLISH?
A cataract is a clouding of the lens inside the eye which leads to a decrease in vision. It is the most common cause of blindness and is conventionally treated with surgery. Visual loss occurs because opacification of the lens obstructs light from passing and being focused on to the retina at the back of the eye. It is most commonly due to aging, but there are many other causes. Over time, yellow-brown pigment is deposited in the lens and this, together with disruption of the lens fibers, reduces the transmission of light and leads to visual problems. Those with cataracts often experience difficulty in appreciating colors and changes in contrast, driving, reading, recognizing faces, and coping with glare from bright lights.
The first definition of cataract in the dictionary is a large waterfall or rapids. Other definition of cataract is a deluge; downpour.Cataract is also partial or total opacity of the crystalline lens of the eye.
