What is Cataract Surgery?

Thanks to innovative medical advances, cataract surgery is a common outpatient procedure. The goal of the operation is to break the cloudy cataract-affected lens into easily removable pieces, remove those pieces and insert an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) in place of the natural lens.

Traditionally, surgeons accomplished this by making tiny incisions in the eye using a surgical knife. Today, patients like you have a choice: There’s manual surgery, and there are also bladeless procedures assisted by advanced laser technology. The LenSx® Laser, for example, offers image guidance for predictability and enhanced precision.

Cataract Causes

A cataract occurs when the natural lens in your eye becomes cloudy, making it harder for light to enter your eye. Cataracts typically occur naturally as you age, and they often cause blurry vision, glare and rings of light known as halos — sometimes at night and while driving.

What You Can Do

The good news is cataract procedures are one of the most commonly performed surgeries in the U.S., with more than 4 million taking place each year. That means 4 million patients just like you are getting back to their favorite activities every year. Many of them are doing it with the help of the LenSx® Laser, which offers precision and predictability.
