When that lens becomes cloudy you have cataracts. But most people might be surprised to learn what causes them to develop. They're caused by a build-up of shedded cells that deposit over time on the lens.

That's why you're more at risk for cataracts as you age. Other risk factors include family history, medical problems, such as diabetes, high salt intake, long term unprotected exposure to sunlight and previous eye injury.
