Cataract refers to the clouding of the native lens of the human eye and is a common condition faced by the elderly. As we age, the protein in our lens may gradually change in shape and clump together to cloud the lens. Our ophthalmologists are skilled in the treatment of cataracts and we offer advanced surgical techniques such as phacoemulsification and femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery, as well as a range of intra-ocular lenses (IOLs) to suit your vision needs.
