Loss of transparency of the eye's lens is known as a cataract. Patients with this disease have vision comparable to that of a dirty window. Similarly, retinal diseases can lead to blindness slowly or quickly, depending on the cause. As the eye is a delicate organ, an expert ophthalmologist must reduce the disease burden.
