As you get older it is normal to have minor cloudiness of the lens. However significant cloudiness – or cataracts – can slowly worsen and at this point surgery to remove the damaged lens is the only way to restore your normal vision.

In comparison to many other surgical procedures cataract surgery is relatively straightforward. The full procedure will typically take between 30 and 45 minutes. You will be given a local anaesthetic, which means you will recover faster and therefore you’ll be able to leave the same day as the operation. The surgery involves removing the damaged lens from your eye. When the lens has been removed, the surgeon inserts a small plastic lens, called an intraocular implant, also known as an intraocular lens. Once the procedure is complete you are taken to a ward so you can recover before leaving the hospital later that day.
