Information About Cataracts Procedures

About Cataracts

The process of aging can cause many adverse effects on the body. In the case of the eyes, the natural lens can begin to develop spots that are cloudy and prevent light from entering the eye. These spots are known as cataracts, and depending on their severity, they could obstruct your vision enough to require treatment. If you're concerned you might be suffering from cataracts, the experienced team at Vance Thompson Vision in Alexandria, MN can perform refractive cataract surgery, traditional cataract surgery, or YAG capsulotomy to restore your vision.
