Are cataracts serious?

Most cataracts develop slowly and don't pose any risk to the eye's health. However, they can cause a reduction in vision that won't go away unless treated. Rarely, in very advanced cases, the lens capsule can break down and the contents of the lens will begin to leak into the eye. This can lead to inflammation inside the eye and glaucoma.
