MedlinePlus:35 A cataract is a clouding of the lens in your eye. it affects your vision. cataracts are very common in older people. by age 80, more than half of all americans either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. a cataract can occur in either or both eyes. it cannot spread from one eye to the other. common symptoms are blurry vision colors that seem faded glare - headlights, lamps or sunlight may seem too bright. you may also see a halo around lights. not being able to see well at night double vision frequent prescription changes in your eye wear cataracts usually develop slowly. new glasses, brighter lighting, anti-glare sunglasses or magnifying lenses can help at first. surgery is also an option. it involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an artificial lens. wearing sunglasses and a hat with a brim to block ultraviolet sunlight may help to delay cataracts. nih: national eye institute

MalaCards: Cataract is related to senile cataract and posterior polar cataract. An important gene associated with Cataract is MAF (v-maf avian musculoaponeurotic fibrosarcoma oncogene homolog), and among its related pathways are Gap junction trafficking and Cell adhesion Gap junctions. The compounds gap 27 and carbenoxolone disodium have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include eye, retina and endothelial, and related mouse phenotype vision/eye.
