A cataract is a gradual clouding of the usually-clear lens in your eye. This condition restricts the amount of light that reaches your retina (the nerve layer that lines the back of the eye) and can result in blurry and disturbed vision. If you have a cataract you may feel as though you are looking through a frosted window.
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that cause progressive damage to the optic nerve. Located at the back of the eye, the optic nerve sends visual signals from the eye to the brain. Too much fluid in the eye can put increased pressure on the optic nerve, resulting in gradual vision loss.
The retina is the nerve layer lining the inside of the back of the eye. Left untreated, some retinal diseases can lead to severe loss of vision or even blindness.
