Crystalline Lens changes - Cataracts

Flash Player required

The Crystalline Lens is the lens in your eye that helps focus the light onto the retina in order for you to see. This lens changes as we get older and results in some of the  age-related changes described here.


As these changes become more significant they start to affect vision; then they are described as cataracts.
