Cataracts are one of the leading causes of visual impairments, occurring in most people over the age of 70, though 1 in 6 people in the US have some stage or form of cataracts by 40.
A cataract is a cloudiness of the lens inside your eye. It develops as a normal part of the aging process, usually beginning in your fifties and slowly progresses with time.
Most commonly, cataracts cause overall blurriness that persists throughout the day. Glare, halos, and even one-eyed double vision can also be associated symptoms. Patients with cataracts may notice that colors appear more dull or that they need more light to read.
Take a look at the examples below:
All-laser LASIK is the safest, most precise method available for creating the corneal flap, which is the first step in the laser vision correction process. To do this, we use the highly advanced combination of the Advanced WaveLight EX500 excimer laser and the WaveLight FS200 (femtosecond laser).
The procedure is painless, blade-free and only takes about 15 minutes for both eyes.
Most people can resume normal activities the day after their LASIK procedure.
