Learn more about cataracts, and what can be done to correct them. Familiarize yourself with our process and reach out to our team if you have any additional questions.
We have a natural lens inside our eyes that bends (refracts) light rays that come into the eye to help us see. The lens should be clear, but if you have a cataract it means your lens has become cloudy – much like looking out through a dirty window. This can result in cloudy, blurry, yellowish vision. Colors also become less vibrant.
The procedure to remove cataracts takes about 20 minutes per eye, but the eyes must be done at different times. The second eye is typically done approximately 2-3 weeks after the first eye.
There is no cure or reversal for cataracts besides surgery. However, you may be able to slow down the development of cataracts by protecting your eyes from UV rays.
