Every normal human eye contains a crystalline lens that helps the eye to focus images, much like the lens inside a camera that brings images into focus on the film. When we are born, this lens is made up of clear proteins.
Over time with the normal aging process, and with environmental factors such as UV light, poor nutrition, or smoking, the lens becomes cloudy. This clouding of the normal crystalline lens is irreversible, and is called a cataract. As the cataract becomes more densely clouded, the lens progressively scatters more light and results in poor vision.
Cataracts can only be diagnosed through a visit to an eye doctor, where they will use a specialized instrument called a slit lamp to evaluate the eye. A slit lamp is a microscope used to examine both the inner and the outer tissues of the eye.

"Dr. Rhodes is a master at getting your vision right. I love not wearing glasses; colors are brighter, vision is clearer. He explains what is going on with your vision and what he is going to do for you in a manner that is clear and understandable. Also, it's a small thing, but increasingly rare, every time I have an appointment, I am seen within a few minutes of the appointed time. I recommend Dr. Rhodes to everyone I know, he is just that good!"
