Cataract

Cataract, is an opacity of the lens, which can cause an increase of lightsensitivity and vision loss. In most cases it is age-related, rather seldom it can be caused by injuries and chronic inflammations. Patients often describe it as a blurred vision, like looking at things through a thin curtain.

Cataract can be cured by a surgical operation. The surgeon makes tiny incisions, inserts ultrasound instruments and breaks the cloudy lens into small pieces. These are removed and replaced with a lens implant. The artificial lens can be adjusted induvidually and thereby compensate possible long- or shortsightedness.
