What is Cataract Sugery?
As we age, so do our eyes. The crystalline lens in every human eye eventually becomes yellowed, cloudy, and rigid. This is called a cataract, and it blocks and distorts light. When cataracts start to significantly affect vision, Cataract Surgery offers a solution. The natural lens of the eye is removed and replaced with a clear artificial lens, called an Intraocular lens (IOL), which brings clarity back to your vision.
Is Cataract Surgery Right For Me?
- Is your vision yellowing?
- Do you see a lot of glare?
- Are colors changing?
- Are you having difficulty driving, reading, or recognizing faces?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you are probably a candidate for Cataract Surgery.
