Clear the cloud of cataract

Every human eye has a lens suspended inside it which is crucial for clear vision.  As we get older that lens can slowly go misty, and such a lens is referred to as a cataract. This process most commonly affects both eyes, but one eye can be worse than the other.

When cataracts develop you will notice progressing blurring of your vision, halos around lights at night and/or difficult seeing in low light conditions. The only known effective treatment for cataracts is specialist surgery where the cloudy lens is removed and replaced by a clear plastic lens that permanently rests inside the eye.

Although the idea may sound terrifying, cataract surgery is normally not painful and overall the results are excellent. It is however an operation and like all operations it carries risks, but prior to agreeing to any procedure all of those risks will be explained to you.

The potential benefits for you as an individual will also be clearly described allowing you to make an informed judgement as to whether or not you wish to proceed.

If you would like an honest, expert opinion on what treatment is best for you as individual, call us or email us to arrange a consultation.
