What Are Cataracts and what are your options?
Cataracts and your opportunity for better vision
A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens inside the eye. It typically occurs with advancing age but can also be associated with certain diseases, history of trauma, or various medications. Light can no longer be focused normally onto the retina in the back of the eye and images appear cloudy or distorted. Lights, especially driving at night, can become bothersome. Small print can become more difficult. When glasses can no longer adequately improve the vision and reduce these symptoms then surgery can be considered.
