Do I Have Cataracts?

Preparing For Surgery

The Process In-Depth  

Welcome To The Laser Cataract Centre

Cataracts are very common. Fortunately they are treatable. Almost 2 million cataract surgeries are performed in North America every year.

When a cataract reduces your vision to the point that you can't do things you like to do (such as reading, driving, working on the computer), it is probably time to have the lens removed. Surgery is the only effective way to remove the cloudy lens.

Cataract surgery is performed using freezing drops and light sedation (similar to how you may feel after 2 alcoholic drinks). The surgery is usually painless.

The cataract is broken up using ultrasound or laser, with the aid of a special microscope. The clear bag that holds your cataract, is the same bag that will hold the clear implant. Your surgeon will discuss the implant options with you.
