Sound Eye and Laser in Seattle, Washington offers state-of-the-art cataract surgery technologies and procedures. Many people over the age of 60 can suffer from vision impairment due to cataracts. In fact, almost everyone develops cataracts as they grow older. Cataract surgery at our Seattle Washington facility is performed under the strictest clean room regulations and we can repair vision loss due to cataracts.
Cataract surgery is designed to reverse the clouding effect of the eye's natural lens. This clouding impedes light passing through the eye to the retina. Aging and other factors cause proteins in the eye's lens to bond to one another and form these cloudy areas. Cataracts classically result in blurry vision and light sensitivity. Individuals with cataracts often experience the feeling of looking through a glass of water or wax paper.
