Cataract surgery is one of the safest and most frequently performed surgeries in the United States, with more than 3 million treatments performed annually. Most cataracts are caused by clouding on the lens, which can develop with age. In cataract surgery, the cloudy lens is replaced with an artificial lens to restore clear vision. A variety of cataract surgery options exist, but most are performed on an outpatient basis and take less than 90 minutes. You will need someone to drive you home, and you be prescribed medicated eye drops to take several times a day for the first few weeks of recovery. Schedule an appointment with us today to learn which cataract surgery treatment is best for you, and how to prepare for your procedure.
