CATARACT PRE-OPERATIVE EDUCATION
A cataract is a progressive clouding of the natural lens of the eye. The lens in the eye is like the lens of a camera focusing an image on the film of the camera. When the lens becomes cloudy it interferes with light passing through the eye onto the film, which is called the retina. Newsom Eye offers Adjustable Cataract Surgery to provide patients with the best technology and lens options available. During your pre-surgical cataract evaluation, your surgeon will review the standard and customized cataract lens options to help educate you about which lens choice best suits your specific visual needs and lifestyle. The choice of customized lens, combined with the expertise of our Newsom Eye cataract surgeons, may reduce or possibly eliminate the need for glasses and bifocals.
