What is cataract surgery?
Cataract surgery is a type of surgery used to remove the
lens of your eye when it is cloudy. Your
lens should be clear to see but with a cataract, your eye's ability to bend
light is affected and this affects your vision.
With a cataract, your vision is blurry, hazy or less colorful. With cataract surgery, your natural cloudy
lens is removed and replaced with a clear, synthetic lens. We call this lens an intraocular lens (IOL). At Altoona Ophthalmology Associates, our
doctors will discuss IOLs and how they work.
