Cataracts can affect everyone eventually. It is a condition that is age-related but there are other causes that can lead to the formation of a cataract. Typically a slow, progressive cloudiness of the eye’s natural lens, cataracts cause distorted, blurry, and/or foggy vision, often with a halo or glare effect around lights. Cataract is a serious condition that often starts with mild symptoms, but gradually affects the ability to read, sew, drive and function efficiently. Over time, you can expect that your vision will worsen until the cataract is removed. The Eye Institute employs one of the most experienced cataract surgery teams in Utah and the world and is committed to fight the debilitating effects of cataracts and restore your vision.
Since I had the procedure I’ve noticed that I can read anything. I had gotten used to always looking for my glasses and now I don’t need them. Everything about the facility, staff and the LenSx custom cataract laser procedure was first class.*
