When should a cataract be operated on?
Ideally, surgical intervention for cataracts should be considered upon the emergence of initial symptoms, including the presence of cloudy or blurred vision, difficulty seeing in low-light conditions, increased sensitivity to light, and the need for enhanced illumination for reading or engaging in other visual activities.

How is cataract surgery performed?
Cataract surgery entails the utilization of state-of-the-art technological equipment, thus ensuring heightened precision, minimally invasive techniques, expedited surgical duration, and abbreviated recovery periods.

At what age do cataracts appear?
Typically, the onset of cataracts occurs around the age of 50-55. By the time individuals reach the age of 65, more than 50% of the population may have developed cataracts. Nevertheless, it is worth noting that congenital and premature cataracts can also occur in certain cases.

Can both eyes be operated on for cataracts?
It is preferable to perform surgery on each eye for the patient's safety.
