Meaning of Cataract
A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye leading to a decrease in vision. They may affect one or both eyes. Often they develop slowly. Symptoms may include faded colors, blurry vision, halos around light, trouble with bright lights, and trouble seeing at night. - See link


Cataract in Spanish is Catarata
La catarata es la opacificación total o parcial del cristalino. La opacifiación provoca que la luz se disperse dentro del ojo y no se pueda enfocar en la retina, creando imágenes difusas. Es la causa más común de ceguera tratable con cirugía. Tiene diversas causas pero se le atribuye mayormente a la edad aunque también hay muchas otras causas. Con el tiempo se depositan partículas de un color café-amarillo que poco a poco van opacando el cristalino. - See link
