Cataracts develop when the proteins that make up the eye's natural lens start to degrade, which causes the lens to cloud and leads to blurry vision.

Traditional cataract surgery utilizes fine, handheld tools to create precise incisions and remove the cataract lens.

Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, refractive laser cataract surgery removes a clouded, damaged lens and fixes astigmatism.

YAG capsulotomy is performed if the capsule that holds the lens in place becomes clouded after the patient has received cataract removal surgery.

During cataract surgery, an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) is used to replace a natural lens that has developed a cataract and needs to be removed.

*Individual results are not guaranteed and may vary from person to person. Images may contain models. Possible risks of LASIK include but are not limited to: dry-eye syndrome, which can be severe; possible need for glasses or contact lenses after surgery; visual symptoms including glare, halos, star-bursts, and double vision, which can be debilitating; and loss of vision. The results of cataract surgery cannot be guaranteed. Additional treatments and/or surgery may be necessary.
