Cataract Surgery

A cataract is a clouding or opacification of the natural lens in the eye that causes visual impairment. The development of cataract is a common part of the aging process.

As a cataract progresses, it blocks and scatters more light, causing progressive deterioration of vision, that cannot be corrected with spectacles or contact lenses. In an age-related cataract, symptoms begin due to a gradual reduction in the amount of light entering the eye.
