A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens inside the eye that prevents light from focusing clearly on the retina. If you are experiencing blurred or clouded vision, sensitivity to light, or frequent vision changes, we recommend that you schedule an appointment with one of our doctors at Texan Eye. Cataracts are a common result of aging but can also be caused by eye injuries, diabetes or side effects of medication. Though surgery is the only treatment to overcome cataracts, it is a fast outpatient procedure that is one of the most common procedures performed in the United States. The best surgical option is to replace your natural lens with intraocular lens implants (IOL). The new lens implant becomes part of your eye, requiring no care while restoring your vision. At Texan Eye, our doctors were instrumental in developing advanced accommodating intraocular lenses. Our practice performed the FDA clinical trial leading to the approval of this technology.
