The eye’s lens is composed mainly of water and proteins. As you will learn in this video, these proteins may begin to clump together and cloud the lens as you age, resulting in the development of a cataract.
Cataract surgery removes the faulty lens from the eye and inserts a new artificial lens. Before your surgery, your pupil will be dilated with drops, and your eye area will be cleansed. You will have a local anesthetic injected, and may be offered a sedative to help you relax. The entire surgery lasts less than one hour.
If you suffer from cataracts , this minor surgery can help you see clearly again. Whatever your vision ailment might be, contact the NYC Vista Laser Vision office of Dr. Mark Hornfeld at (212) 580-8881 today to find out what your treatment options are.
