More about Cataracts

cortical 01 180A Cataract is a clouding or opacity of the natural internal lens of the eye. This opacity may be a small spot or may cover the entire lens. When light enters the eye it is scattered, causing images to appear hazy and blurred. There are many different types of cataracts. The one shown here is a cortical cataract. Here the opacity forms first is the periphery of the lens and develops inward, like spokes of a wheel. Ultimately, the best treatment is to remove the cataract lens (via day surgery) and replace it with an acrylic lens, called an intraocular lens implant. Dr. Janot and his staff will coordinate all of your arrangements and, if you have Medicare, all of your post operative visits can be done here in our office.
