Cataracts



cataracts

A cataract refers to a cloudy lens in the eye. The intraocular lens is usually but not always clear in young people. As we age, the lens becomes yellow and cloudy resulting in:

  • trouble distinguishing colours

  • hazy vision

  • increased sensitivity to glare

  • haloing

  • most commonly the lens is replaced with an artificial one, and vision is restored

  • there are over 1.5 million cataract surgeries in North America annually and over 95% of these are successful.
