Cataract surgery is becoming more common among today’s society. It removes the natural lens of the eye that has developed a cataract. Over time, metabolic changes of the eye’s lens leads to the development of the cataract and loss of transparency. This causes impairment or loss of vision. Some of the first signs of cataract symptoms are strong glare from lights at night and reduced acuity at low light levels. During cataract surgery, a cataract surgeon will remove the patient’s cloudy natural lens and replace it with a synthetic lens to restore the lens’ transparency. Cataract surgery is done by a cataract surgeon on an outpatient basis. It is usually done within the surgeon’s office.
