Cataracts occur when the natural lens inside the eye becomes cloudy and opacified. They range from a mild degree of clouding to advanced. Most cataracts are related to the natural aging process of the eye and will affect nearly all patients at some point in their lives. The most common complaints include: blurry vision, poor night vision often associated with glare and halos, difficulty reading and dissatisfaction with best corrected vision. Cataract surgery removes the affected lens and replaces it with a new synthetic lens. This surgery is one of the most common elective surgical procedures performed in the United States with one of the highest success rates. To date, we have performed over 30,000 cataract procedures.
