Understanding Cataract Surgery

A staggering 20 million Americans are living with cataracts today. Fortunately for cataract sufferers, there is an effective surgical solution that can eliminate cataracts and successfully restore both near and distance vision, as this news clip explains.

An implantable lens, or intraocular lens, is placed into the eye after the natural lens and the cataract are removed. This implantable lens is carefully unfolded during the procedure and stays in place permanently; most cataract surgeries require only 10 to 15 minutes to be performed. Many patients who have undergone this advanced treatment no longer need to wear glasses, except for reading.
