A cataract is simply a clouding of the eyes natural lens. (SEE CATARACT VIDEO «). Cataracts do not harm the eye and in most cases, there is no such thing as leaving cataracts in too long. Very, simply, cataracts need to be removed when they bother you. If your doctor tells you that your cataract MUST be removed and you are not having noticeable problems with your vision it may be wise to get a second opinion.
In cataract surgery, the cloudy lens is replaced with a synthetic clear lens implant. One reason that cataract surgery can make such a difference in your vision is the variety of lens implants that we have available. We have lens implants to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. We also have multifocal lenses which can give a patient clear distance and up close vision without glasses. (For more information about the lens implant options, see the “INFINITY PROGRAM”).
