Cataract Surgery

Cataracts are a build up of protein in the lens in a patient’s eyes that interrupts the flow of light to the back of their eye. There are several types of cataracts including age-related, congenital, traumatic and secondary cataracts with age being the primary cause. Cataracts are primarily diagnosed in people who are about 60 years of age.  Although they certainly can affect younger patients, 50% of those age sixty and older suffer from them. Surgery is the only effective treatment for cataracts.

Cataract surgery is one of the safest and most common surgical procedures performed today. It is performed on an outpatient basis at a local ambulatory surgical center. The actual procedure takes only minutes to perform. There are no stitches and when the bandage is removed the day after surgery, many patients experience uncorrected vision that is better than before they developed cataracts.

  • Anyone with cataracts whose quality of life suffers from poor vision.
