What causes Cataracts?

There are a number of things that can cause cataracts but the vast majority of the time cataract development is simply a result of the natural aging process.  Researchers are trying to identify more specific contributing factors and possible methods of prevention.  Some studies suggest that exposure to ultraviolet light may be associated with cataract development, and recommend wearing sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat to lessen your exposure.
