June is Cataract Awareness Month. Inside our eyes, we have a natural lens that bends light in order to let us see things in focus. As we age, the lens typically becomes cloudy, which can impact the clarity of our vision. That cloudy lens is a cataract.

Once the vision is impacted to a significant degree, cataract surgery can be considered. In cataract surgery, the cataract is removed, and a clear artificial lens is implanted into the eye. This outpatient procedure is usually safe and effective.

Dr. Fishkin is an expert cataract surgeon. He is pleased to offer his patients the latest advances in cataract surgery, including special artificial lenses that correct astigmatism and difficulty with reading vision at the same time as the surgery.
