What is a Cataract?

About half of all people over the age of 80 have cataracts or have had cataract surgery. Almost everyone who lives into their 60s develops at least mild eye cataracts. Cataracts, which can cause blindness if left untreated, are essentially unavoidable.

As you age, the lens of your eye gradually becomes cloudy. This can happen as a result of the proteins that make up the lens starting to break down. This cloudy lens is called a cataract. This clouding causes blurry vision.

Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is the most common surgical procedure performed on adults in the United States and is extremely safe and effective. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, generally takes a half-hour or less, and recovery time is usually only a few days.

Cataract surgery is a two-step procedure. First, the surgeon removes your cloudy lens. Second, a new lens implant is inserted into your eye. The cloudy lens is removed with a tiny instrument that enters your eye through a small incision. The surgeon, or laser, will then gently break the cataract into tiny pieces and remove them from the eye with a miniature vacuum cleaner. Once the eye cataract is out, you will need a new lens in order to focus after surgery. These lenses are called intraocular lenses or IOLs, come in many different strengths. Before your cataract vision correction, your doctor will perform several measurements to determine the appropriate lens implant strength for your eye.
