Cataracts and Cataract Surgery
A cataract is a common condition in which the normally clear lens of the eye becomes increasingly cloudy. Compared to vision with a clear lens, your vision with a cataract may look fuzzy, colors might be muted, and you may experience difficulty reading signs while driving at night.
The symptoms of cataracts are progressive and can not be corrected with glasses or contacts. When symptoms become bothersome or limit your daily activities, it’s time to consider treatment.
Treatment for cataracts involves removal of the cataract and replacement with an artificial lens that can restore clear vision.
Lens Implant Types:
- Monofocal lens for vision at one distance
- Multifocal or accommodating lens for near, intermediate and far vision
- Toric lens for correcting astigmatism
