Cataracts & Surgical Treatment

A cataract is the progressive clouding of the lens of the eye. As the cataract develops the vision becomes increasingly blurred and out of focus.

Other symptoms can include, glare, colours appear duller and night vision problems, and in particular driving at night with the headlights of other cars.

Cataracts more commonly occur in older individuals and are the leading cause of visual impairment. Though cataracts develop as a normal part of the aging process, occasionally children are born with them or they can develop secondary to an eye injury, inflammation or other eye disease.

Modern cataract surgical methods make this an effective and safe procedure. Prior to your cataract surgery our doctors will discuss the most suitable lens implant to use for your surgery, in order to achieve the best possible vision post operatively.
A cataract operation is performed as a day surgery. Our surgeons use state of the art surgical equipment and operate in the St George area, Sutherland shire, Chatswood and eastern suburbs of Sydney.

If you would like more information on cataract surgery and its suitability to you, please call and speak to one of our friendly clinic staff or alternatively email us at
