Patient vision and lifestyle questionnaire
Like clouds blocking the sun, cataracts prevent light from passing through the lens, blocking you from seeing clearly. During cataract surgery, your doctor will remove the clouded lens and replace it with an intraocular lens or IOL.
Although cataracts simply obstruct vision, they can be accompanied by other issues, such as astigmatism or presbyopia, that can make things look a little blurry. Thanks to advancements in IOL technology, your doctor can address these conditions during your surgery simply by choosing the best lens that’s right for your eyes. The goal isn’t just to remove your cataracts but also to help you see your life as clearly as possible.
