Laser Cataract Surgery
While the cataract procedure is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the U.S., there is often confusion about what causes cataracts, how they affect vision, and how they can be removed.
What is a Cataract?
A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s normally clear lens causing blurry vision. Cataracts usually develop as part of the natural aging process. The following factors may contribute to cataract formation:
• Eye injuries
• Diseases (such as glaucoma or diabetes)
• Overexposure to sun’s rays
• Some medications
