Cataracts


A cataract is any opacity which develops in the crystalline lens of the eye. The most common reason cataracts develop are because of our age and our family history. Surgery is a same day out patient operation. There is no longer a need for injections, stitches, or patches with modern cataract surgery. You receive a lens implant after the cataract is removed, which will improve your eyesight. 


In addition, multiple other factors can contribute to the development of cataracts. These include: medication and medical conditions, such as diabetes.


When eyeglasses no longer correct your vision to a satisfactory level and reading or night driving is a problem for you, cataract surgery can restore your vision.
