A cataract is a common cause of decreased vision.  They can occur at any age, but especially after age 60.  A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens in the eye.  When cataracts are removed the natural lens is almost always replaced with an artificial lens, and this restores vision.  Surgery for cataract enjoys a fine reputation because the results are usually excellent.  Our ophthalmologists are expert cataract surgeons with extensive experience.
