What is a cataract?
A cataract is a change in the clarity of the lens inside the eye. The lens becomes yellow and clouded instead of being crystal clear like the lens in a camera. Instead of light focusing crisply inside the eye, light is scattered as it passes through the cataract Cataracts cause blurred vision, haloes, glare, difficulty reading or driving in dim light. Cataracts occur in everyone with time but can be monitored until they impact your activities of daily living

How do I know if I have a cataract?
A complete dilated eye examination performed by an ophthalmologist or optometrist will determine if you have a cataract. You may suspect a cataract if your vision has been gradually declining over time.

What are the symptoms of a cataract?
Symptoms of cataracts may include decreased and/or blurry vision, a change in color vision, difficultly reading for long periods, and problems driving at night or in bright sunlight. Glare and halos around lights at night are also frequently noted by patients with cataracts. You may suspect a cataract if your vision has been gradually declining over time.

How are cataracts treated?
Once a cataract forms, it must be surgically removed. There are no other effective treatments to remove a cataract. The procedure typically takes only a few minutes, and is most often performed under topical (numbing drops) anesthesia usually requiring no stitches. Refer to Our Procedures section

What are lens implant options?
Over the past decade improved technology has greatly increased the safety and efficacy of the cataract procedure. Now, premium lens implants offer an opportunity to dramatically reduce your dependence on glasses after surgery. Your cataract surgery is a once in a lifetime event, and the benefits of premium lens implants should be considered. Read more about it in The New Lens Implant article

What happens during cataract surgery?
During cataract surgery, the natural lens of the eye is removed and a new, artificial lens is implanted. The artificial lens is made of a material that has been used in surgical operations for over 50 years. This material is very well tolerated by the body.

When can I expect my vision to improve after cataract surgery?
Following cataract surgery, vision should start to improve within one week. There should be a noticeable improvement in vision within 4 to 6 weeks.
