Your eye has a clear lens through which light passes, allowing you to see. When the lens loses its transparency, the cloudy tissue that develops is known as a cataract. Cataracts are the leading cause of vision loss among adults. Sufferers usually describe the condition as being similar to looking through a waterfall, or a piece of wax paper, with a gradual blurring or dimming of vision.
Now, the 650,000 Southern Californians who suffer from cataracts have access to the first significant treatment advance in more than a decade to give the safest and most reliable outcomes for our cataract surgery patients.
