Cataracts

A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. It can be compared to a window that is frosted or yellowed.

Common symptoms of cataracts include:

Blurring of vision

Glare, or light sensitivity

Poor night vision

Double vision in one eye

Needing brighter light to read

Fading or yellowing of colors

Cataract Surgery

In cataract surgery, the cloudy lens is removed from the eye through a surgical incision. In most cases, the natural lens is replaced with a permanent intraocular lens (IOL) implant.  Specialty IOL’s include multifocal (to eliminate wearing bifocals) and toric IOL’s to correct astigmatism.
