Cataract Surgery

Cataracts

Cataract surgery is a common day case eye procedure that replaces a cloudy cataract lens with an artificial lens to improve sight.

An eye cataract is the clouding of the lens of the eye which can cause reduced vision and can deteriorate over time. Cataract will develop over time and is a normal part of ageing and they can also affect one or both of your eyes.
