The lens focuses incoming light plays into the eye to the retina. From the retina, the light transmitted to the optic nerve to the brain for interpretation. If the cataract lens membrane blindfolded, would interfere with interpretation of the brain to the object. If observed, the protein that surrounds the lens that looks like white spots or dirt on the pupil (black circle) of the eyeball.
The only way to deal with cataracts is surgery. The most widely used techniques are extracapsular extraction, ie lift and replace the original lens with an artificial intraocular lens.
