Cataracts are benign, normal lens changes within the eye that cause blurring of vision. Everyone will get cataracts, and some people are born with them, but not everyone needs cataract surgery.

Some things speed up the severity of cataracts like diabetes, smoking, or taking certain medications like steroids.

If cataracts are blurring your vision, we can evaluate and advise you about various procedures and recommend a surgical specialist for you. We can see you in the weeks following surgery to give you personal attention and carefully monitor your progress.
