The eye is the window to the universe.
Have your windows gotten cloudy?

A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s lens. It is the leading cause of vision loss for people over the age of 40 in the United States and is the leading cause of blindness worldwide. Approximately 20 million Americans have cataracts in one or both eyes. The Centers for Disease and Prevention estimate, more than 30 million Americans will have cataracts by the year 2020.
