Cataracts are among the most common eye diseases. These conditions occur when proteins in the lens of your eye build up to form a cloudy or opaque covering over the lens. Though cataracts can result in blurry or dull vision, they are very treatable. In fact, there are various cataract removal treatments to restore clearer vision.
Standard cataract surgery can remove cataracts that contribute to cloudy vision, while laser guided cataract surgery can address multiple eye conditions at once, including cataracts, astigmatism and presbyopia. These treatments break up cataracts and remove them from the eye. A clear, artificial lens is then placed into the eye to help you see clearly again.
Revolutionary intraocular lenses (IOLs) can improve vision across various distances. The advanced technology of TECNIS Symfony® and AcrySof® ReSTOR® allow for crisper vision up-close, far away and at intermediate distances. Advanced Ora™ and VerifEye+™ can further improve your cataract surgery results by taking precise, real-time measurements of your eye during your treatment. Together, these innovative cataract removal technologies can enhance visual acuity like never before. Learn more about your cataract surgery treatment options below.
