Is someone you love seeing the world like this? They don't have to. August is Cataract Awareness Month Learn More [Click to view] A clouding of the lens in the eye is called a cataract. If necessary, the lens can be surgically replaced to restore vision. Causes of cataracts include aging, heredity, diabetes, eye injury, smoking, and exposure to radiation.
