Restore your vision. So, you can do the things you love most. Cataracts are very common—affecting most people over the age of 65. A cataract occurs when the natural lens in your eye becomes discolored and clouded, resulting in hazy or blurred vision. If left untreated, cataracts can eventually lead to blindness.
Cataract surgery replaces the old clouded lens with a new clear artificial one. Cataract surgery is among the most commonly-performed in medicine, plus, technological advances have made the procedure even more safe and successful. Magruder Eye Institute offers the most advanced procedures for cataract surgery, including laser-assisted cataract surgery and the latest in replacement lenses designed to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia in addition to the cataract.
