The eyes lens is like a lens of the camera which focuses the light on the retina and thus provides a clear vision. Also, it helps adjust the focus of the eye and therefore makes a clear image of nearby and far away objects. This lens is made up of water and various proteins which keeps the lens clear and allows the light to pass through it. As the person ages, this protein adds up and clumps onto the lens which therefore forms the CATARACT.
