A cataract is a clouding of your eye’s normally clear lens. This clouding of the natural lens can keep light and images from reaching the retina. A cataract can be the reason sharp images become blurred, appear discolored, dull or distorted, or glare at night. It may also be the reason that your glasses no longer seem to work for you and changing your glasses does not help.
During cataract surgery, the cataract specialists at Albemarle Eye Center and Precision Eye Care remove the cloudy natural lens from the eye. After that, in most cases a permanent intraocular lens (IOL) implant replaces the natural lens to restore focusing power. The exciting news is that we offer the most advanced technology intraocular lenses (ATIOLS) which further enhance post-operative visual outcomes.
