What is a Cataract?
A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision. Most cataracts are related to aging. A cataract can occur in either or both eyes. It cannot spread from one eye to the other.
The most noticeable symptom of cataracts is progressive blurry vision. It may not be noticeable at first, but over time you will notice that everyday tasks become more difficult.
Other cataract symptoms include:
- Sensitivity to light
- Double vision in one eye
- Poor night vision
- Fading or yellowing of colors
- Painless blurring of vision
- Frequent changes in contact lens or glasses prescriptions
Cataract surgery is the only method of treatment proven to get rid of cataracts. The procedure is extremely safe, and millions of people undergo it each year. Your surgeon will remove the cataract-affected lens and replace it with a clear artificial lens. Learn more about pre-operative and day of care and the post-operative care process.
Is cataract surgery effective?
Cataract removal is one of the most common operations performed in the United States. It is one of the safest and most effective types of surgery. In about 90 percent of cases, people who have cataract surgery have better vision afterward.
