Comprehensive Treatment for Your Cloudy Vision
Many older adults experience vision changes. If your eyesight is blurry, you may have cataracts. Cataracts are a normal part of aging but treatable with cataract surgery. Our expert team at USC Roski Eye Institute offers the most advanced cataract treatments — including femtosecond laser cataract surgery and advanced technology intraocular lenses. We build your personalized treatment plan using the latest diagnostic and surgical approaches. That way, you get care unique to you, so you can get back to seeing clearly.
What Are Cataracts?
Cataracts form when the clear lens of the eye becomes cloudy. This clouding prevents light from reaching the eye’s retina, making it hard to focus.
You may not notice vision changes when cataracts first develop. Over time, cataract symptoms include blurred vision and sensitivity to light and glare. These symptoms may make it hard to read and drive at night. People with advanced cataracts often describe their vision as like looking through a waterfall or a piece of wax paper.
What Causes Cataracts?
Aging is the most common cause of cataracts. They are also caused by injury to the eye.
