Cataracts can dramatically affect the quality of your vision by making it dark or cloudy. The condition can make it difficult to drive, read, or perform even minor daily tasks.

More Information on Cataract Surgery
Cataracts can form at any age as a result of eye injury, medications, and disease or, in rare cases, they can be present at birth. Cataract surgery can be performed when the blurring caused by a cataract begins to interfere with activities that you need to do or enjoy doing.
Until recently, most cataract patients had their vision improved with a single focus intraocular lens (IOL) which could only offer clear vision at a single distance. There are now advanced options that can reduce your dependence on glasses at a range of distances, such as reading and driving.
A unique option is available for patients with astigmatism in addition to the presence of a cataract. If you have an astigmatism and are concerned primarily with improving your distance vision following cataract surgery, toric intraocular lense implants are a good option.
The traditional, monofocal lens implant improves image quality and contrast after surgery. Patients without astigmatism generally achieve a decreased dependency on glasses for distance. However, glasses for near and possibly distance will be required following surgery with the traditional lens.
