Cataract surgery is an operation to remove your eye’s lens when it is cloudy and you experience a blurry vision.
The purpose of your lens is to bend (refract) light rays that come into the eye to help you see. Your own lens should be clear, but with a cataract it is cloudy. Having a cataract can be like looking through a foggy or dusty car windshield. Things may look blurry, hazy or less colorful.
The only way to remove a cataract is with surgery. Your ophthalmologist will recommend removing a cataract when it keeps you from doing things you want or need to do..
Cataract surgery is a procedure used to restore cataract-related vision loss.
During surgery, the clouded lens inside your eye will be replaced with a clear artificial lens. You won’t feel any pain during the procedure.
Cataract surgery it’s one of the safest and most effective vision surgeries available today.
The potential need for cataract eye surgery goes up as you age, when cataracts are most likely to develop or worsen.
