Normally, the eye has a clear lens through which light passes, allowing you to see. However, when the lens begins to lose its transparency, it becomes a cataract. Everyone gets a cataract as they age; the degree of the cataract and how much your vision is affected are what our doctors will assess.

Symptoms of Cataracts:

  • Blurred or hazy vision
  • Double vision in one eye
  • Poor vision in bright light
  • Seeing halos around lights
  • Poor vision at night
  • Yellowish tinged vision
  • Frequent changes in eyeglasses or contact lens prescription

If visual impairment interferes with your daily abilities, cataract surgery may be a good option. Cataract surgery is relatively painless and is one of the most frequently performed procedures. It has a very high success rate, with more than 95 percent of cataract surgery patients able to regain useful vision.
