Cataracts are mostly related to the natural aging of the eye.

The lens of the eye is located inside the eye just behind the black central opening of the iris (colored part of the eye) called the pupil.


Cataract surgery remains one of the most frequently performed surgeries in the United States today. Today’s microsurgical techniques promote safety, patient comfort and convenience. The surgeons of Eger Eye Group and SightLine Laser Center perform cataract surgeries on an outpatient basis. No needles! No stitches! No-stitch surgery reduces patient discomfort and reduces the chances of complications. With the advent of intraocular lenses, a small artificial lens is inserted into the eye once the cataract is removed resulting in wonderful vision with normal thickness glasses afterwards.


A cataract is a clouding of the clear crystalline lens in one’s eye. People with even the mildest of lens changes may be aware of glare, light sensitivity, poor night vision, fading or yellowing of colors, double vision in one’s eye, or simply an increase in blurry vision. Some people develop cataracts as a result of injury, medications, family history, or diabetes.
