What is cataract surgery?

If you suffer from cataracts, your ophthalmologist may recommend cataract surgery to restore your vision and improve your daily life. During this procedure, your surgeon will remove your natural, clouded lens and replace it with an artificial, clear lens. This surgery is generally considered an effective treatment method for cataracts, but like all surgeries, it is not without risk. If considering surgery to repair your eyesight, consult with your ophthalmologist and he/she will provide you with further information.
