What are Cataracts?

Normally, a clear lens provides clear vision. A cataract lens blurs, dims, discolors, and clouds one’s vision. Surgery removes this cataract, and replaces it with a small, clear plastic lens.

Your eye has a clear lens, just like a camera. It can become clouded as a cataract due to age, injury, or other factors.

There are many types of cataracts. In some, only part of the lens is affected, and yet, this can cause a great loss in the quality of vision. As cataracts can develop slowly over a period of time, decreased vision may not be noticed.

Modern replacement intraocular lenses are unfolded into the eye through a very small incision.
