Information About Cataracts Procedures

About Cataracts

Cataracts are cloudy spots found on the natural lens of the eye that prevent the necessary amount of light from entering the rest of the eye. This naturally occurs as we age, but in some instances, the cloudiness can require corrective surgery. Depending on the severity of the cataract, our staff at Vance Thompson Vision in Omaha, NE can perform one of three procedures to correct the lens and repair your vision. Consider scheduling an appointment today if you feel your eyesight may be suffering from the effects of cataracts.
