What is the Cataract disease?
A cataract is a disease that results from the clouding of the eye’s lens. With age, the lens loses its transparency, it can become yellow and even brown. This means that much less light reaches the eye, and the patient experiences a deterioration in visual acuity, reduced color saturation or lowering contrast. Some people describe it as seeing through dirty glass, very blurry. Untreated cataracts can even lead to complete loss of vision, so if it occurs, you should undergo cataract surgery laser removal.
What are the causes of the disease?

What does the procedure look like?
The entire procedure of cataract removal takes a few minutes, and the most important part of the procedure, i.e. capsulorhexis, defragmentation of the nucleus of the lens and making tunnels for inserting the tools takes about 30-40 seconds.
