People with cataracts now have options. A cataract is a clouding that occurs in the normal lens that comes as part of the normal aging process. The cure is a sophisticated procedure called lens replacement which is performed rapidly and with virtually no pain or discomfort. What is so exciting today is that lens replacement surgery or cataract surgery now has the option of being a refractive procedure as well. In other words, if you have a cataract and are wearing glasses, you can have lens replacement surgery and no longer need glasses. The improvements are so significant that we can now replace lenses with a new lens that can correct both near and distance vision. Because we, at The Eye Clinic of Texas have so much experience with refractive procedures, LASIK, and excimer laser refractive procedures, we have been performing refractive lens implantation for years
