Say goodbye to cloudy vision and hello to clear.
What are cataracts?
Cataracts are a fact of life. If we have enough birthdays, we will develop cataracts. A cataract is when our natural lens becomes cloudy.
The lens sits behind the pupil and is crystal clear when we are young. Over the years, the lens which is made of protein and water, changes and gradually becomes cloudy.
Cataracts cause a variety of symptoms:
- Difficulty seeing objects in the distance
- Glare or starbursts from oncoming headlights while driving
- Some types of cataracts affect near vision more than distance

How are cataracts treated?
When you have visual symptoms related to your cataract, and your doctor feels that your cataract is the cause, cataract surgery is an option. This is an outpatient surgical procedure performed under light anesthesia (you stay awake but your eye is made comfortably numb). You will take eye drops to help the eye heal following the surgery.
