Cataract - How are my eyes affected by cataract?

As we age, the lens of the eye can become cloudy.  When the lens becomes cloudy enough to reduce your vision, it is called a cataract.

The result of this clouding is that the light cannot pass through the lens easily, and your vision becomes blurred.

The most common cause of cataract is aging.  Other causes include: medications, such as steroids; systemic diseases, such as diabetes; and, exposure to ultraviolet light.



"My experience with Dr. Murphy was very pleasant and professional. She took time to explain the problems and remedies. I had cataracts in both eyes. The lenses were replaced with multi-focal ones. I am extremely happy with the outcome. The staff was courteous, helpful and professional." James H.

"I was always so afraid to have anything done to my eyes, but Dr. Murphy's calm and full explanations took away this fear." Joan K.

"It is so nice to have a doctor responsive to my needs.  Dr. Murphy did both my cataracts and the multifocal lens enables me to read the smallest print.  I highly recommend Dr. Murphy and her staff." Bill S.
