 View of the Cataract with pupils dilated.  The Cloudy lens is called cataracts. A cataract is a clouding of the lens of the eye, which can block or distort light rays from reaching a person’s retina. Cataracts may develop slowly over time and cause no pain. However, as a cataract grows, it clouds more of the eye’s lens, significantly impairing vision.
