By increasing the depth of focus and enhancing the quality of vision, our cataract surgery has the potential to make patients less dependent on eyeglasses. A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens inside the eye. Just as a dirty camera lens can spoil a picture, a cataract can prevent light from focusing clearly inside the eye. Cataracts develop in almost everyone sooner or later. The most common cause for cataracts is aging. Other factors are injury, excessive sunlight, toxic chemicals, changes in your body's metabolism, or drugs.CATARACT
