Having cataracts is the most common eye condition that affects individuals over the age of 60. At Kelly Vision Center, we offer laser cataract surgery to those 50 and above to provide an enhanced level of vision and quality of life.
What is Cataract Surgery?
Cataract surgery is extremely common, with more than three million patients undergoing it each year. It is a convenient outpatient procedure that only takes 10-15 minutes for the actual surgery. The purpose of cataract surgery is to remove the clouded lens and replace it with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL).
In the past, cataract surgeons would remove the clouded lens by creating tiny incisions within the eye using a surgical knife. However, now with modern technology advancements, cataract surgery is much less invasive, with only a small hole being made using a laser.
