When cataracts are in the early stage of development, they can be treated with prescription eyeglasses or contacts. As cataracts progress and begin to significantly interfere with vision, patients can undergo phaco emulsification cataract surgery to replace the cloudy lenses with standard or toric lens implants.

Complications following cataract surgery with lens implants are extremely rare, and the entire procedure can usually be completed in less than 15 minutes. During cataract surgery, the eyes are numbed with anesthetic eye drops (no needles are required), and the lenses clouded by the cataracts are removed and replaced with lens implants. The implants are inserted through a micro incision, then tucked under the iris and placed in the original lens position. All without the need for stitches. See the Technology tab for information on today's lens choices.
