Buckingham Palace says Queen Elizabeth II had successful eye surgery to treat a cataract last month.

A cataract is "a clouding of the eye's natural lens, which lies behind the iris and the pupil", according to a definition by All About Vision.

The Queen "successfully underwent a short planned procedure", a spokesperson announced, following reports by ITV news reporter Chris Ship who tweeted that the 92-year-old was treated as a day patient at King Edward VII hospital in London, the same hospital where husband Prince Philip, 96, had his hip replacement surgery ahead of the royal wedding.

The hospital is named for the queen's great-grandfather, King Edward VII, the eldest son of Queen Victoria.

Cataract surgery is performed to treat the cataracts which can cause blurry vision and increase the glare from lights.

Cataracts are more common in the elderly and can affect the ability to carry out daily activities such as driving. A person can be more at risk of developing them if they have a family history of cataracts.
