Cataracts cloud the eye’s natural lens, resulting in blurred, cloudy vision, often associated with night glare. Many people with cataracts describe their vision as looking through wax paper or cellophane. With cataract surgery, the clouded natural lens is removed and replaced with a clear artificial lens. This surgery is delicate, simple, and generally highly successful. The surgeons at Capitol Eye Care have helped literally tens of thousands of patients realize improved vision with modern cataract surgical technology. The advancements in cataract surgery over the past few decades are legendary. Capitol Eye Care has been and remains at the forefront in offering patients the very best in vision restoration technology.
In the overwhelming majority of cases, cataracts are simply the product of aging. We all will get cataracts if we are fortunate enough to live long enough!
