Beverly Hills Cataract Eye Surgery
Serving Los Angeles, California and Surrounding Communities
A cataract is a cloudy area in the lens of your eye. Normal eye lenses are completely transparent, allowing light to pass freely to the back of the eye. Once a cataract starts to develop, your eye’s lens will gradually become more opaque, causing less light to reach your retina. Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness among American seniors.
Around 50% of Americans between the ages of 65 and 74 have cataracts. This percentage goes up to around 70% once you reach age 75. If you have a cataract, you may experience the following symptoms:
- Blurred and distorted vision
- Light sensitivity
- Double vision in one eye
- Poor night vision
- Colors are less vivid
- Glare and halos around bright lights
If cataracts are left untreated for too long, they can eventually lead to blindness. Thankfully, there is a safe and effective solution: cataract surgery.
Replacing Your Cataracts With a New Lens
Over the years, cataract surgery has been virtually perfected to the point where it is now one of the safest, most effective, and most successful surgeries in medicine. The basic procedure involves removing the cloudy natural lens of your eye and replacing it with a new artificial lens. Your cataract will be removed with ultrasonic waves: a process known as phacoemulsification.

Thanks to amazing advances in the types of refractive lenses that are available, cataract surgery is capable of not only restoring your vision, but potentially making it better than it was before.
