The human lens consists of layers of protein that are laid down over time and continue to grow throughout life and at all decades from 10 to 70 years; the male lens is heavier than its female counterpart.
The layered structure of the lens is much like an onion or tree trunk, albeit clear before loss of clarity and cataract occurs. The cataract causes blurred vision, loss of contrast and can make everyday tasks such as driving difficult. This can occur at any age but is more common in people over 60 years old.
Cataract surgery removes the cloudy lens protein and replaces this with a lens implant that can correct your glasses prescription for distance and near vision.

Very often a mixture of the three types of cataract is seen due to all layers of the lens being affected.
