Cataract Surgery is an operation to remove the eye’s lens when it is cloudy. The purpose of the lens is to refract light rays that come into the eye to help you see. Normally, the lens of the eye is clear but the cataract causes the lens to become cloudy, which eventually affects your vision. Based on clinical researches, Cataract is an increasingly common cause of decreased vision as the population ages and lives longer.
Cataract surgery can be done traditionally using ultrasound energy to remove the cloudy lens or it can be removed with laser-assisted technology. The short recovery time after the surgery allows the vast majority of patients to resume their everyday activities within a day or so after the Cataract procedure.
