A cataract is when the lens of the eye becomes cloudy, causing vision impairment. Cataracts are a common development for people in their fifties and sixties, and they can have a large impact on the ability to perform many daily tasks.
There are several reasons why you may decide to get intraocular lenses. In the past, if you had multiple vision problems, an intraocular lens could only correct one of them.
The American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) is one of the leading organizations behind many recent advances in eye surgery technology. At the annual symposium for the ASCRS, Seeta Eye Care Centers' own Highland ophthalmologist Dr. Satish S. Modi gave a presentation on a new type of intraocular lens that has the potential to help millions of patients with cataracts who are thinking of undergoing refractive surgery.
