What is cataract surgery?
Cataract surgery is a procedure to remove the lens of your eye and, in most cases, replace it with an artificial lens. Cataract surgery is used to treat the clouding of the normally clear lens of your eye (cataract).
Cataract surgical procedure is generally performed by an ophthalmologist (eye surgeon) on an outpatient basis (rather than inpatient), which means you don't have to stay in the hospital after the surgery. Cataract surgery is very common and is generally a safe procedure.
Many of our cataract patients' first symptoms are strong glare from lights and small light sources at night, along with reduced acuity at low light levels. During cataract surgery, a patient's cloudy natural lens is removed and replaced with a synthetic lens to restore the lens's transparency.
Well over 90% of operations are successful in restoring useful vision, with a low complication rate.
What are the symptoms and signs of cataracts?
Although cataracts usually develop without pain, some indications that a cataract may be forming are:
- Blurred or hazy vision
- Difficulty seeing small print
- Poor quality of vision
