Cataracts are a common eye condition that affects people as they age. A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens in the eye that causes blurry or dim vision. It is caused by the build-up of protein in the lens, which makes it less transparent over time.
Cataract surgery is a relatively simple and safe procedure that involves removing the clouded natural lens and replacing it with an artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL). The procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis, meaning that patients can go home the same day.
Most patients are able to resume normal activities within a week or two after surgery, and their vision gradually improves over the next several weeks.
If you have symptoms of cataracts or are experiencing vision problems, please contact us to make an appointment with one of the sub-specialised cataract specialists to discuss the best treatment options for you.
