Cataracts is where the clear lens inside your eye becomes cloudy. This happens over time as you get older. Regular eye examinations are important so the Optician can monitor you vision and recommend treatment if necessary. You should have an eye examination with an Optometrist 6 weeks after cataract surgery.

  • Vision is not clear even with the best visual correction
