What Happens During a Cataract Procedure?

The only way to restore clear vision once you have been diagnosed with cataracts is to have cataract surgery.

In the past, because the eye's lens had been removed, the patient had to wear eyeglasses with thick lenses. Now, it is possible to restore clear vision and reclaim your life with relatively little discomfort or inconvenience. In fact, modern cataract surgery at Mountain Empire Eye Physicians is...
