What Are Cataracts?

  • A cataract occurs when the lens of the eye becomes cloudy, this is a normal part of the ageing process and occurs over many years.
  • This normally happens over a period of time, and as a cataract progresses you can expect a deterioration in your vision
  • They typically occur in people over 60, but can occur in younger people
  • While your GP or Optometrist may suspect a cataract, you will need to be referred to a specialist ophthalmologist such as Prof Watson for a comprehensive diagnosis and discussion of options available, typically cataract surgery.

Cataract surgery is the most commonly performed operation in the developed world.
