Cataract Surgery

We all have a natural lens inside the eye called the crystalline lens. Its name is due to its transparency. Thanks to it, we are able to focus clearly when looking at different distances.

With age this lens becomes opaque due to natural causes, generating a decrease in the quality and quantity of vision. Other causes of opaqueness are trauma, congenital alterations, metabolic diseases such as diabetes or chronic consumption of medications such as corticosteroids.

Any opacity in the lens is known as a cataract and its only treatment is surgery, in which the opaque lens is removed and replaced with an acrylic lens that will be housed in the place where the cataract was and will be there. (inside the eye) for life.
