Cataract Surgery



Similar to a camera lens, light is able to pass through a clear crystalline lens and focus on the retina to produce a clear image. In an eye with cataract, clouding of the lens occurs affecting how light passes through and leading to an overall decrease in vision.

While the causes of cataracts are mostly age-related, injury and health conditions may also increase your risk of developing cataracts.

Signs/ Symptoms of Cataract:

  • Cloudy, blurry, hazy vision
  • Unable to improve vision with visual aids (eg: spectacles)
  • Light appears more glaring/ dim
  • Difficulty with night vision (eg: driving, haloes)
  • Reduced perception of colors
