Cataracts

Specialty of Ophthalmology

Cataracts, also known as phacosclerosis, occur when the lens in the eye, whose function is to convert light rays into images on the retina, hardens or clouds up. When this part of the eye becomes obstructed, vision becomes weak and blurred. There are many types of cataracts, and it is a fairly common condition as people get older. The only possible treatment for cataracts is surgery, although it is only recommended when the condition has a great impact on the patient’s day to day activities. The operation to remove the cataract involves the removal of the damaged area of the lens, replacing it with an intraocular lens.
