A cataract is the clouding of the eye's normally clear lens, blocking the passage of light needed for vision. They form slowly and cause no pain. Cataracts usually develop with aging of the eye, but can also be caused by diabetes, medications or trauma to the eye. Some stay small and hardly affect vision, but if the cataract does grow and begin to affect your vision, it can usually be removed with surgery.
Common Cataract Symptoms:
If you have a cataract and a spectacle prescription change does not help to improve vision, then the clouded lens should be surgically removed and replaced with an artificial lens.
It is important to realize that cataract can be removed only surgically. It cannot be removed with a laser, although lasers can be used in their treatment after surgery. When performing cataract surgery in Detroit, Dr. Weingarten uses a small incision and an ultrasound hand piece to fragment and remove the clouded lens (cataract).
A lens implant is then inserted to replace the cloudy lens. The procedure is usually very successful in restoring vision, and is performed as an outpatient.
