Cataract surgery is the repairing or removing a cataract. It is done by removing the eye’s natural lens that has developed a cataract. Metabolic changes of the natural lens fibers over time lead to the development of a cataract and the loss of transparency. This causes impairment and loss of vision. One of the first symptoms of having a cataract is strong glares from lights or light sources at night. During cataract surgery, the cataract surgeon will remove the cloudy natural lens and replace it with a synthetic lens to restore the lens’ transparency.
