Over 300,000 cataract surgeries each year
If your vision has become blurry, hazy or dim, a cataract may have developed in one or both of your eyes.
Many people say that having a cataract is similar to looking through a dirty car windscreen. This cloudiness can become worse over time causing increasingly poor vision. The only treatment is cataract surgery. The damaged lens is removed and replaced with a hi-tech artificial lens. The new lens can also correct long-sightedness, short-sightedness, reading vision and treat astigmatism (an uneven curve of the eye). The treatment itself takes less than 30 minutes with each eye is treated on a different day.
