As we all grow older, the natural crystalline lens that we are born with becomes cloudy, bringing on visual symptoms such as blurred vision, glare, halos, sensitivity to light and difficulty with night vision and loss of color vision. This clouding of the natural lens is referred to as a cataract. Simply put, this cloudy or hardened lens can no longer produce clear, sharp images the way it used to. Cataracts can also be caused by trauma, heredity, diabetes and even some medications.
Cataracts occur at different rates and can affect one or both of your eyes at the same time. Fortunately, with today’s modern medical technology, your cataract can be treated safely and effectively through a microsurgical technique and implantation of an intraocular lens (IOL) which replaces the natural crystalline lens. In fact with today’s technology, patients can actually look forward to not simply regaining vision, but returning to youthful vision!
