A cataract is the clouding of the eye’s natural lens. The clouding obstructs the vision making it difficult to see what is in front of you. Usually, people develop cataracts as they age. Most people do not begin to suffer from cataracts until they are over the age of 40.
A way to rid yourself of cataracts is to have surgery. To remove a cataract, your doctor will perform laser cataract surgery, which will remove the cataract. This procedure is fairly painless, and the success rate is very high.
Multifocal Lens Implants
Once you have had cataracts removed, it may be best to have multifocal lens implants. The lens implants will be able to correct your vision and allow for better and clearer vision. The multifocal lens implants are customized to your individual needs, and can even help with astigmatism.
