What are Cataracts?
Cataracts are the clouding of your eye's lens. Your lenses are made of protein and water. Over time, the protein has a tendency to become clumped together, causing cloudy patches in the lens that result in symptoms such as:
Cloudy, blurry vision • Glare or halos • Rapid prescription changes
How Does Surgery Help?
The only way to restore clear vision to your life is by having cataract surgery. During this procedure, your cloudy lens is removed and replaced with a clear lens. At Victoria Eye Center, we use an advanced no shot/no stitch method of cataract surgery. We create a tiny incision on your cornea and then use ultrasound energy to gently break up the cloudy lens and remove it from your eye. A new Intraocular Lens (IOL) is inserted through the same incision. The entire process only takes 10-15 minutes!
