A cataract is a clouding of the eye's natural clear lens. As we age,
the lens becomes cloudy and the vision becomes blurred. Common
symptoms of cataract include: blurry vision without pain, fading of
colors, glare or light sensitivity, worsening night vision, and
difficulty reading in Normal Eye Visiondim light. Cataracts can be
removed when the vision is interfering with daily functions.
Cataract surgery has been revolutionalized over the past few
decades. The natural lens is removed and an artificial lens implant
is placed. There are choices in lens implants and their powers.
Monovision, multifocal and toric lenses to correct for astigmatism
are excellent options.
