Cataracts are actually considered an inevitable part of aging and are widespread among people ages 55 years and older. In fact, half of all Americans have them—or have had cataract surgery—by age 80. In other words, if you live long enough, you will likely develop cataracts.
The only way to cure cataracts is through cataract surgery. Modern day cataract surgery makes use of a vast array of high-tech equipment and surgical techniques. We have past the days when cataract surgery required a two-week stay in the hospital. Today’s cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure that takes a half-hour or less and lets you get back to your normal activity level within a few days. Our patients are truly amazed by the healing time and often resume activities much sooner than expected.
Please feel free to visit the pages of our cataract center on this website. There are various options for lens implants used after cataract removal so we encourage you to read about your options. If you have any questions regarding our experienced Boston area cataract surgeons or the advanced technology we employ please schedule a consultation and we are happy to explain the entire surgical process from start to finish.
