Cataract Surgery

Man getting eyes examinedCataracts are associated with the aging process and are most common in older adults. Cataract surgery is one of the safest and most effective surgical procedures performed today.

Having a cataract can affect your vision by making it blurry, foggy or less colorful. A cloudy lens may impair the ability of your eye to bend light rays that come into the eye to help you see. The only way to remove a cataract is through surgery, in which the eye’s lens is replaced with a clear artificial lens.
