Getting the Care You Need
From the Doctors You Trust
Nearly everyone will develop cataracts at some point. Typically, a cataract needs to be removed only when vision loss interferes with your everyday activities, such as driving or watching TV.
Symptoms of early cataract may be improved, e..g, new eyeglasses. Otherwise, surgery is the only effective treatment.
There are two types of cataract surgery. Your doctor can explain the differences and help determine which is better for you.
Cataract surgery is one of the safest and most common surgeries performed today and is most often done as an outpatient procedure.
