Cataracts are a natural side effect of aging. They are the leading cause of blindness worldwide and affect millions of people each year. Fortunately, cataract surgery can correct this problem, restoring vision and preventing blindness.
At Bernitsky Vision, we offer cataract removal and corrective eye surgery. Depending on your individual needs and budget, there may be several treatment options available that can remove cataracts and restore or improve vision.
What Are Cataracts?
A cataract occurs when your normally clear lens becomes clouded. This cloudiness prevents light from reaching the back of the eye resulting in a gradual loss of vision. Early in their development, cataract symptoms are mild and may not affect your vision much if at all. However, over time they will worsen if not treated.
How Cataract Surgery Works
Cataract removal involves making a small incision into the cornea and removing the clouded lens. This will then be replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL). This artificial lens will work just like a natural lens to allow light into your eye and restoring vision.
