Any opacity of the lens in the eye is considered to be a cataract, whether it is a small local opacity or a diffuse general loss of transparency.
Cataracts may occur as a result of aging or secondary to hereditary factors, trauma, inflammation, metabolic or nutritional disorders, or radiation. Age-related cataracts are the most common. The three common types of cataract are nuclear, cortical, and posterior sub capsular.
When cataracts interfere with visual function, it is time to consider Cataract surgery. We can assist you with the referral and perform your postoperative followup visits
