The term cataract is used to describe any opacity in the lens of the eye. Cataracts develop as a normal part of ageing and cataract surgery is one of the most common, safe and successful procedures performed in the Western world. At Eyescan, we are lucky to work with Dr Harry Unger, a specialist in the field of cataract surgery. Please find below a brochure written by Dr Unger outlining the condition and the procedure of cataract surgery. Our experienced optometrist is always available to help decide if cataract surgery is right for you.
