Initially, as cataracts begin to develop, you may not notice any change in your vision. But as it progresses, your vision will become blurry or cloudy, as though looking through a dirty window, and colors won’t be as bright as they once were.
The Centers for Disease Control recommends 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise each week to reduce the risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, depression, high blood pressure, and colon cancer.
