Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is the most common type of eye surgery. It is usually performed as an outpatient procedure, which means you can go home the same day. Furthermore, the surgery involves removing the cloudy lens from your eye and replacing it with a clear artificial lens.

Most people who have cataract surgery experience improved vision afterward. In fact, more than 90% of people who have cataract surgery say they are very satisfied with the results.
