Cataract surgery is the most common and safest surgery performed in the United States today. In general, cataracts are a clouding of the natural lens inside the eye that occurs mainly with aging. However, young patients can have cataracts as well, such as congenital or traumatic cataracts. The clouding of the lens in the eye causes blurred vision that gradually gets worse and eventually requires surgical removal and replacement with an artificial implant lens.
At the Zion Eye Institute, we have multiple, highly skilled and experienced cataract surgeons that can treat even the most complex cases. As a team, we perform more cataract surgeries than any other office in Southern Utah. We offer all of the latest and most advanced techniques, including custom cataract surgery, laser-assisted cataract surgery, Restor and Tecnis multifocal lenses, and Toric lenses to correct astigmatism.
