Eye Center South
Cataract Care


The human eye has a natural lens just behind the pupil that works much like a camera lens. When light enters the eye, the clear lens focuses that light onto the retina at the back of the eye. These images are transmitted to the brain for processing, allowing us to see. As we age, the clear lens becomes cloudy and cannot focus light correctly, resulting in the blurred vision we call a cataract.  Changes in the lens often occur around age 40, with many becoming aware of cataracts at 60. Cataracts are incredibly common. In fact, by age 80, more than half of all Americans either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. A cataract can occur in either one or both eyes, but it cannot spread from one eye to the other. 


What are Symptoms of a Cataract?

  • Blurry or double vision 
  • Fading or yellowing colors 
  • Glare, halos around lights, or light sensitivity 
  • Trouble driving at night 
  • Requiring more light to read comfortably

The best time to have your cataract removed is when your quality of life is diminished because of poor vision.  Don’t suffer needlessly; request a cataract surgery consultation today.

In order to restore vision obscured by cataracts, the clouded natural lens must be surgically removed. During cataract surgery, one of our expert cataract surgeons will gently remove your eye’s cloudy lens and replace it with a clear, artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL).  Cataract surgery, which lasts approximately 10 minutes, is an outpatient procedure. Our patients often return to their normal activities just a few days after surgery. 

Artificial Lenses (IOLs) for cataract surgery were originally designed to simply restore vision. Thanks to an evolution in design and technology, specific artificial lenses not only correct vision, but can also improve it.  We offer our patients advanced artificial lenses that provide exceptional results, correcting blurry vision caused by refractive errors like myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. We’re proud to give our patients incredible visual results using the industry’s most innovative Artificial Lens, the RxSight® Light Adjustable Lens.

At Eye Center South, we offer multiple treatment plans to ensure that you get the most from your eye surgery.  Your physician will recommend the best option for you based on your test results. Your Healthcare team will thoroughly explain all lens options available to you, and answer any questions to assist you in making an informed choice.
