What is a Cataract?

The lens is behind the pupil and helps focus what we see. The focused image then falls on the retina. A cataract occurs when the lens of the eye becomes cloudy. It is not a growth, but a haziness in the lens itself. If the lens is not clear, the vision is blurred.

As the cataract matures, the retina receives less and less light. This means your vision becomes increasingly distorted and blurred.

With today’s modern medical technology, your cataract can be treated effectively and safely with microsurgery. Cataract surgery is one of the most successful surgical procedures performed today. Over 95% of call cataract procedures result in better vision.
