A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye, which can cause one’s vision to become blurry. They are very common with age and can occur in one or both eyes. The clouding usually occurs slowly, but can happen quickly, especially after trauma to the eye. While cataracts are not painful, they do cause many symptoms such as blurry vision, fewer details, glare while driving or reading, dull colours, changes in your glasses prescription and double vision in one eye.

We offer the latest procedures available to help remove cataracts and restore your vision, including the placement of Intraocular Lenses.
