We are committed to providing a thorough education for patients seeking treatment for their cataracts and to determining the most effective treatment plan for each patient on an individual basis. All options are discussed including Maxximum Technology Cataract Surgery (MTCS). No evaluation is complete without time for the patient and family to ask the doctor and staff questions.
Cataracts are a clouding of the eyes’ natural lens. Because they block light from passing through the lens, cataracts make it difficult to see clearly and can even cause blindness over time. Cataracts are progressive, meaning they worsen with time. Although cataracts are more common in older adults, people in their 30s, 40s, or even younger can also develop cataracts. Some cataracts are associated with injuries, medications, inflammation, and certain systemic diseases such as diabetes.
For most of our lives, our eyes provide us with good vision, though many of us may require glasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery to sharpen that vision. Cataracts are far and away the most common treatable cause of poor vision.
- Clouded, blurred, or dim vision
- Increasing difficulty with vision at night

- Seeing “halos” around lights
