Cataracts

Cataracts are a clouding of the lens of the eye. When a cataract worsens to the point of interfering with daily activities, it's time to have the lens removed. Surgery is the only effective way to remove the clouded lens, and most are now done on an outpatient basis. Over 1.5 million cataract operations are performed in North America each year.
