The structures of the eye that allow light to enter are normally clear and transparent, such as the cornea and lens. This ensures that the light can completely reach the retina and form a visual picture. However, as people age, the lens material becomes stiff and thick. The proteins in the lens start to change color and clump together. This produces a cloudiness or opacity in the lens which is referred to as a cataract. Read more about cataracts here.
