    With a cataract problem your vision probably looks like this.

    A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s normally clear lens. The cloudy lens scatters light and makes it hard for the eye to focus light into a clear image. As the cataract gets worse, your eye has a harder time focusing. This can cause blurred vision, glare and faded colours.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      What is a cataract?

      A cataract is a clouding of the natural crystalline lens of the eye. In order for us to see properly, the light that enters the eye must pass through this lens. For cataract sufferers, the lens becomes partially or totally opaque, greatly reducing visual acuity. Generally speaking, cataracts are caused by the aging process.

      Do we have to wait several months before having surgery?

      No. You could have surgery within two to three weeks.

      Will I have 20/20 vision?

      As with any surgical procedure, there is no guarantee that you will have perfect vision or that you will not need glasses. After the operation, the majority of patients see well enough to pass a driving examination without wearing glasses.

      Do I have to be accompanied the day of the surgery?

      Yes, you have to be accompanied the day of the surgery.

      ”Since 1982”

      In order to follow the North American tendency to group ophthalmic services under one roof, the design plans for the Institute were entrusted to an American company specializing in the creation and operation of leading ophthalmic centres throughout the United States. We have a forward-thinking approach that allows us to offer patients a reassuring atmosphere and service that is both fast and efficient.
