Actually, we don't know for sure why the eye's lens has vision loss with age. But medical research has identified several factors that may cause cataracts. Besides old age, cataract may be caused by:
- Exposure to Ultraviolet radiation
- Excessive use of corticosteroid medications

- By birth or family history
