What causes cataracts?

The most common cause of cataracts is related to the ageing of the eye. But other causes include:

  • Long-term, unprotected exposure to sunlight.
  • A family history of cataracts.
  • Medical problems, such as diabetes.
  • An injury to your eye.
  • Medications, such as steroids.
  • A previous eye injury.

Laser Eye Surgery does not cause a Cataract.
