What is a Cataract?

If you want to learn about cataracts and cataract surgery, my son can help.

Everyone is born with a lens inside their eye.  It's supposed to be clear.  When it becomes cloudy, it's called a cataract. 


What is Glaucoma?

Everything your eyes see in the world around you is sent to your brain through the optic nerve. The optic nerve is sick in patients with Glaucoma.  Lowering the eye pressure helps slow down or stop the progression of glaucoma.  This helps preserve the health of the optic nerve, which is very important for your vision.
