Cataract Eye Surgery in Mumbai

Inside our eyes, we have a natural lens which bends the light rays coming into the eye and help us to see. For clear vision, the lens must be clear and transparent.

A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens. For people with cataracts, it is like looking through a frosty or fogged-up glass. Most cataracts develop slowly with no effect on your vision, but with time it gradually interferes with your vision. When cataract interferes with vision/daily activities, you might need cataract surgery. Fortunately, cataract surgery is safe and effective procedure.
