A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision. Most cataracts are related to aging. Cataracts are very common. In older people. By age 65 more than half of all Indians have either a cataract or have had cataract surgery.

Basic Eye Anatomy
The human eye is somewhat like a camera. It’s a ball shaped organ about an inch in length and rests in a bony protective socket called the Orbit.

The entire eye is wrapped in an outer white layer, “The white of the eye”, called the Sclera covered with a thin movable transparent film, the conjunctiva. When this conjuctiva gets infected it become “Pink” and we say that the person is suffering from, conjunctivitis.

Right in front is the clear window of the eye called the CORNEA. It allows light into the eye. This is the structure that is replaced in “eye donation”. Contrary to popular belief the entire eye cannot be transplanted, its only the cornea which is transplanted to restore a patients vision. When Aishwarya appears in the TVadvertisement and says donate your eyes, she actually means donate your corneas.

Just behind the cornea we find a curtain with an opening called the IRIS. The iris is responsible for the color of the eye and in dark skinned, middle eastern Asians is brown in color due to the presence of pigment. In white people it is blue due to the absence of pigment. In days gone by people “claimed” to know the health of a person by examining the iris and called it IRIDOLOGY. Like other sciences such as reading the bumps on a persons head to determine their future it has waned in popularity!

The black hole we see in this movable brown curtain is called the PUPIL. It acts like the aperture of a camera and lets more or less light into the eye by becoming wider or smaller in response to external light. When we see a cats eye at night we realize that the excellent night vision of a cat is because the pupil of a cat opens very wide.

Just as the camera has a lens to focus light the human eye indeed has a similar lens. This is the structure which when it looses its clarity is called a cataract. Behind the human lens is a formed jelly called Vitreous, not unlike the jelly which sets in a jelly bowl, behind which is the most delicate part the retina.

The Retina is the light sensitive layer of the eye and is made of 10 layers. It lis like the film in a camera and captures the image on it. In spite of having 10 layers its only 0.8 mm thick, like a sheet of tissue.

More than one million of these retinal nerve fibers leave the eye together as the optic nerve which travels along the base of the brain and reaches the back part of the brain called the occipital cortex.

Remember the eye is just a camera and a light and colour sensor like the sensor in the digital camera of today, it’s the brain that actually “sees”.

What is a Cataract?
A cataract is nothing but a Clouding of the Lens in the eye that affects vision. Most cataracts are related to aging. Cataracts are very common in older people by age 65. More than half of all Indians have either a cataract or have had cataract surgery. A cataract can occur in either or both eyes. It cannot spread from one eye to the other.
