How are cataracts treated?


In the early stages of cataract, magnifying lenses, prescription glasses or stronger lighting can all be used to help the person continue with their daily activities. When vision deteriorates further, cataract surgery can help. It is a routine and very successful procedure, which involves replacing the cloudy lens with an artificial lens.
