When the eye lens thickens and becomes cloudy or opaque, then the eye cannot focus or handle light properly. This eye condition is called a cataract. Causes of cataracts include: aging, diabetes, heavy metal poisoning, radiation exposure, eye injury, and certain drugs, such as steroids. The primary symptom of a developing cataract problem is a slow and painless loss of vision. Cataracts are the number one cause of blindness in the world. Sometimes, a cataract can swell causing secondary glaucoma. Senile cataracts are the most common, affecting persons over 65 years of age. These cataracts are often caused by  free radical damage. Exposure to both ultraviolet rays and low-level radiation from x-rays can lead to reactive chemical particles forming in the eye. These free radicals attack the structural proteins, enzymes, and cell membranes of the lens of the eye. These free radicals maybe in our food, water, air, and environment are probably the primary cause of  increasing number of people suffering from cataracts.

A cataract is a clouding that develops in the crystalline lens of the eye or in the eye's envelope, varying in degree from minor to total opacity obstructing vision and the passage of light. Early in the development of age related cataract, the power of the lens may be increased, causing myopia "near-sightedness", and the gradual yellowing and clouding of the lens may reduce the perception of blue colors. Cataracts normally progress slowly to cause vision loss, and are potentially blinding if untreated. The condition usually affects both of the eyes, but most of the time one eye is affected before the other eye..

A senile cataract, occurring in the elderly, is indicated by an initial clouding in the lens then subsequent swelling of the lens and final shrinkage with total loss of transparency. And with time the cataract cortex liquefies to form a milky white fluid in a morgagnian cataract, which can cause severe inflammation if the lens capsule ruptures and leaks.

Left untreated, the cataract can cause phacomorphic glaucoma. Very advanced cataracts with weak zonules are liable to dislocation anteriorly or posteriorly. Such spontaneous posterior dislocations (like the historical surgical procedure of couching) in ancient times were regarded as a blessing from the heavens, because some perception of light was restored in the cataract patients.

Children can develop cataracts, called congenital cataracts, before or just after birth, but these are normally dealt with in a different way to cataracts in adults.
