Cataract

CataractCataract is clouding of your natural lens which impairs light from reaching the back of the eye. It is a normal aging change but can be accelerated by certain drugs and medical disorders such as diabetes. Cataract surgery removes the cloudy lens in the eye and replaces it with a clear artificial lens called an intraocular lens or IOL. Once removed, the cataract does not reoccur.

Symptoms include:

  • Blurry vision
  • Inability to see signs at a distance
  • A “film” in front of the eye
  • Difficulty appreciating colors
  • Increased glare especially at night
  • Need for more light to read

We perform a minimally invasive, small-incision, no-stitch cataract surgery and offer variety of intraocular lenses. Call us today at 301-587-1220 to schedule your consultation.
