Cataracts occur gradually as we age and usually don’t become bothersome until age 55. However, cataracts can cause extensive vision problems if left untreated and should be corrected by a professional. The ophthalmologists at American Eye Institute offer the most-advanced, premium cataract surgery available, to patients in Beverly Grove, Los Angeles, California at their Cedars Sinai Medical Towers location.
A cataract affects the eye by clouding the natural lens, which is located behind the iris and pupil. Most cataracts develop with aging, however, cataracts can also be present at birth or occur as the result of an injury to the eye. Cataracts can also be the result of diseases like diabetes or long-term use of certain medications, such as steroids.

This is the first IOL lens in the United States that provides an extended range of focus, allowing a fuller range of high-quality vision.
