What is a Cataract?
A cataract is the clouding and hardening of the part of the eye known as the crystalline lens. Cataracts are mainly a result of aging, accumulation of UV and affect a high percentage of people over the age of 60. They can also occur due to eye injuries, diabetes, kidney disease or from certain medications. By impairing the ability to see clearly, cataracts can greatly reduce your capacity to do the things you love.

Cataracts could be treated by surgical means, by an operation where the patient’s clouded lens is replaced with a clear synthetic intraocular lens (IOL). Patients with no other underlying eye problems would continue to have normal vision after the operation. Cataract surgery is one of the most successful surgical procedures performed today – about 98-99% of all cataract surgeries result in improved vision. In some cases, prescription problems could also be solved from this same operation.
