A cataract is a natural aging change of the eye that happens to everyone sooner or later. Most people develop cataracts sometime in their late 50’s and 60’s.It is a clouding of the natural crystalline lens inside the eye. No drops or medical treatments can prevent a cataract. Since the clouding of the lens occurs slowly most people don’t even notice that their vision has been severely affected. Most cataracts decrease vision by making it difficult for people to read, watch television, drive, especially at night, some say that they feel like they are looking through a cloudy window or a fog.

Premium Cataract surgery
Uncomplicated cataract surgery today in Dr. Kagan’s hands takes 7 to 15 minutes with only topical anesthetic, NO injections or needles. A small ultrasound probe, NOT a laser, like some surgeons want you to believe is used to gently remove the natural cloudy lens. Then an artificial lens is placed into the same position of the old lens.
