Cataracts
Overview

Cataracts

Schedule a CATARACT consultation

Cataracts happen when the natural lens of the eye becomes discolored, hazy, or opaque to some extent.

As seen in the schematic below, the lens is hidden behind the pupil. As such, cataracts can most often not be seen from the outside, without the help of a special microscope. But as a cataract grows, it can cause progressive visual deterioration.
