Cataracts develop gradually over time, forming a cloudy layer on the lens of the eye. The lens is found behind the iris, the colored area of the eye. The lens works by focusing the light that comes through your eye so that you can see clear, distinct images. However, as a cataract develops, it interferes with the way light passes through the eye, causing your vision to become more and more blurry.
