Cataract Surgery

Remove clouding lenses and regain bright and clear vision.

What Are Cataracts?

A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens in your eye. When the lens becomes cloudy, vision blurs and colors are distorted. For most, cataracts are a natural result of aging, but cataracts can also be caused by eye injuries, certain diseases, and certain steroids.

Cataract Surgery Options

The only way to get rid of a cataract is to surgically remove the clouded lens and replace it with an intraocular lens implant (IOL). At the Filutowski Eye Institute, we craft a unique surgical plan for each patient based off of your visual needs and goals.

We offer two types of treatments plans to our patients.

Please call to verify if we accept your carrier and plan or check our list of insurance plans.
