You could call them one of the defining traits of the ‘getting old’ process. Cataracts are the clouding that occurs in the lens of the eye which leads to a decrease in vision. It’s a common condition among Singaporeans (as well as people around the world).
Cataracts often develop slowly with symptoms such as blurry vision with halos around light or seeing faded colours.
