                            Cataract
We are all born with a natural lens inside our eye. Commonly with age our natural lens begin to become cloudy. At this time vision may become blurry or foggy. Most cataracts are age related and develop gradually over time. However on occasion a cataract can be caused by trauma, uncontrolled diabetes or a congenital cataract. 

                        Cataract surgery
During cataract surgery, your eye surgeon removes your eye's natural lens and replaces it with a clear artificial lens. This technique uses a small (1/8'') incision into the eye, that causes no bleeding and seldom needs suture. Healing is very rapid allowing almost normal activity from day one, with excellent visual acuity very quickly after surgery.
