Cataracts are a common condition among older adults. In fact, over half of all people aged 65 or older have some degree of cataract development.
Because cataracts are slow growing, you may not even realize you have them at first. A cataract can develop in one eye or both eyes. They do not typically cause pain and do not need to be removed unless vision loss interferes with daily activities.
If you do need cataract surgery, it is very successful in restoring normal vision for most people. You can rest assured knowing that our board-certified and fellowship-trained eye doctors have many years of experience performing thousands of cataract surgeries.
