Make your vision clearer with cataract surgery

When you have a cataract, your eye’s natural lens has become cloudy and discolored, which results in impaired vision at all distances. While there are other risk factors, including diabetes, smoking, heredity, eye injury, and prolonged exposure to UV rays without protection, the most common risk factor is simply aging. 

After a thorough evaluation to determine the severity of your cataract, we will then explain what to expect from your cataract surgery and discuss lens options with you to find the best type for your specific needs. Cataract surgery involves making a small incision into the eye to remove the clouded natural lens and then replacing it with a clear, artificial lens known as an intraocular lens (IOL).

Signs that you may have cataracts include:

  • Blurry or clouded vision
  • Difficulty seeing at night or in dim lighting
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Seeing halos around lights
  • Seeing faded colors or colors with yellow hue
  • Double vision
