Cataract Services

A cataract is a cloudy or opaque area that forms in the lens of the eye. Surgery for cataracts is one of the most common operations performed--and also one of the most effective. Our Casey Eye Institute surgeons are leaders in the field of complex cataract surgery, and work closely with community doctors to provide the highest quality care and outcomes. During cataract surgery, the lens of the eye is removed and a new lens implant is placed. Your surgeon will also help you choose which type of lens implant is right for you after your cataracts are removed.
