Cataract Surgery In Colorado Springs
What is a cataract?
As we age the lens in our eyes naturally starts to become less clear, or cloudy. This fogging up of the lens, which is located in between the iris and the pupil of the eye, causes severe vision loss and is, in fact, the leading cause of blindness in the world for people over 40. In the US, cataract surgery is one of the most common outpatient procedures, with the whole procedure lasting around 10 minutes followed by up to an hour of recuperation before being sent home.
