What are cataracts?
With the formation of a cataract, activities like reading, bowling, or driving can be difficult. Fortunately, vision can be restored quickly, allowing the patient to return home within a few hours. With new advances in cataract surgery, vision improvement begins almost immediately, and an eye patch isn't even needed.


A Cataract is the clouding of the lens of the eye. (See above cloudly image) Like the lens of a camera, the eye’s lens focuses to keep the images of both close and distant objects clear. Over time, the lens becomes cloudy and less transparent; studies suggest accumulated exposure to ultraviolet light causes the natural lens to cloud. Most often, this clouding takes place slowly as proteins within the lens degenerate.

How are Cataracts Treated?
Not only is cataract treatment the most frequently performed surgery in the United States, but it is also one of the most successful.

More than 99% of patients who undergo cataract removal rank their vision as significantly improved.

Is Cataract Surgery Right for Me
To decide whether or not cataract surgery is right for you, a complete and thorough eye examination is necessary. There are several indications for cataract surgery, but rarely will a cataract need to be removed immediately or as an emergency. Because the procedure is elective, most cataract surgery can be scheduled at your convenience.

After consultation with your doctor, you may decide that you wish to have cataract surgery. Before you make this decision, we will inform you about the health of your eyes, any risks and potential complications of surgery, and the alternatives, as well as discuss the benefits for you.

You also need to know what you can reasonably expect for visual improvement following the procedure. You will be fully informed about the surgery and its attendant risks and benefits. Only then can you make an informed decision.
