Since cataracts is an age-related eye condition, it’s important to note that treatment will be different for each patient. Initially, your eye doctor may recommend stronger prescription glasses or contacts. The most common treatment for cataracts is eye surgery. During this procedure, the cataract is removed through a tiny incision in the eye. Most eye surgeons utilize an ultrasonic tool to help break up and remove the natural lens, which is what becomes cloudy from cataracts.
