treatments for cataracts

A change in glasses may initially help once vision begins to change from cataracts. As cataracts continue to progress and become more severe, vision becomes cloudy, and stronger glasses or contacts maybe no longer improve sight.

When significant vision problems develop and are interfering with a person’s quality of life, cataracts are usually treated with surgery. Cataract surgery is very common and currently has the highest success rate of any surgical procedure. It involves removing the natural lens of the eye, which contains the cataract. The lens is then usually replaced with an artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL) implant.
