Cataract Surgery

A cataract is a progressive clouding of the eye’s natural lens that interferes with light passing through to the retina. More than 50% of people over age 60, and some younger, have cataracts. Cataracts worsen over time and vision changes may be gradual or may become symptomatic quickly.

What are symptoms of cataracts?

  • A gradual deterioration in vision over time
  • Objects may appear yellow, hazy, blurred or distorted
  • Vision at night or in low light conditions may be reduced
  • Vision in bright light or in the sun may be difficult due to glare
  • Halos may appear around bright lights at night
