Cataract is accompanied by a complete or partial change in the capsule of the lens. This greatly worsens, blunted vision. The main difficulty of treating cataracts is its chronic form, mainly removal is performed surgically.

The image shows the difference between a normal eye and an organ affected by cataract:
