Cataract Surgery

Not having clear vision can negatively affect you in a number of ways, including during work tasks, everyday responsibilities and when you’re just trying to relax and enjoy the day. That is why it is so important to get any issues you have with your vision addressed, so you can live your life without hassle.

What is Cataract Surgery?

Cataract causes vision problems due to a clouding of the eye's lens. When the eye’s lens becomes cloudy, it becomes difficult for our eyes to focus light correctly onto the retina. When having cataract surgery your clouded lens, or your cataract, is removed from your eye and substituted with a clear artificial lens implant. If you’ve had other eye procedures, such as laser correction, you can typically still receive a cataract surgery procedure.
