What is Cataract?

A cataract is an eye condition that causes clouding of the natural lens of the eye. This prevents the light from passing to the retina, causing blurred or poor vision. They develop slowly over time and are a part of ageing in many adults over 60. Cataracts may develop earlier due to genetic factors, certain medications and medical conditions.

What is Presbyopia?

The word Presbyopia means “old eye” in Greek. This is a condition when your eyes gradually lose the ability to see nearby things. This is a normal part of ageing. You may start developing presbyopia shortly after crossing the age 40.

What is Hyperopia or farsightedness?

This is a condition that results when the visual image is focused behind the retina rather than on the retina. It may be caused due to a small eyeball having a weak focusing power being. This is a condition that is often present from birth. Farsighted people can see distant objects clearly, but the near objects are blurred.
