The cataract surgery operation involves an eye surgeon replacing the misty natural lens (cataract) with an artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL). Ophthalmologists perform about 30,000 cataract operations annually in the UK alone. If you are concerned that you have a cataract, you’re welcome to visit us for a VisionSafe Eye Check to get a diagnosis.
Cataract surgery will improve your vision as long as you do not have any other ocular conditions affecting your vision. To learn more about how cataract surgery works, see below.
