Cataract

Cataract surgery is the most common surgery performed in North America. It is a short procedure used to improve vision that has been reduced due to a cataract. Cataracts are a normal part of aging; as we age, the lens at the front of our eye gradually clouds over, blocking light from reaching the back of our eye making it harder to see. Cataract surgery consists of removing this cloudy lens, and replacing it with a clear, new, artificial lens.
