Suffering From Poor Quality Vision Due to a Cataract?

California Eye Center specializes exclusively in performing small-incision, sutureless, patchless cataract surgery & lens-based vision correction in Los Angeles using PREMIUM LENSES THAT ALSO CORRECT READING VISION!

NOW utilizing the most advanced LenSx Femtosecond Laser Technology !

Cataracts are very common eye conditions that can result in poor vision for many individuals on an annual basis. No matter the cause (usually aging), protein inside of the eyes transforms, turning what is normally a normally clear lens opaque. This interferes with the manner in which our eyes take in light. Cataracts cause:

  • Glare
  • Poor color perception
  • Haloes
  • Overall haze in our vision that does not resolve with glasses or contact lenses

Cataracts can be completely cured with a quick, painless outpatient procedure using modern “phacoemulsification” technology (the Alcon INFINITI Robot with OZil “Intelligent Phaco Technology”) available at California Eye Center.

The beauty of modern cataract surgery is that we now have the technology to also treat the following at the same time as the cataract operation:

  • Myopia (near-sightedness)
  • Hyperopia (far-sightedness)
  • Astigmatism
  • Presbyopia (poor near vision after the age of 40)

We can help people get rid of their glasses (and reading glasses) without the need for laser vision correction (LASIK). In the hands of experienced cataract surgeons, these operations have become incredibly effective, safe, and quick (this procedure can typically be performed within 10 minutes), without the need for any painful injections (blocks) or anesthesia, with easy recovery (no sutures or patches).

What are cataracts?

A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s lens which results in decreased vision. The cloudy lens prevents light from focusing on to the retina and creates poor or blurred images. Aging and the natural degradation of the eye’s lens are the most common causes of cataracts, but other factors such as injury, disease, and exposure to UV light or radiation can also contribute to cataracts

What are the common symptoms of cataracts?

People with cataracts tend to experience a number of symptoms and vision complications. They often report cloudy or blurred vision, dulled color vision, difficulties with glares, increased nearsightedness, and halos at night, among others.

How common are cataracts?

Cataracts are a common eye condition that account for more than 8 million physician office visits each year in the United States. Cataracts are also very common in people over the age of 60, with roughly 60% of this age demographic reporting some type of cataract development.

Is cataract surgery safe?

Cataracts are a common eye condition that account for more than 8 million physician office visits each year in the United States. Cataracts are also very common in people over the age of 60, with roughly 60% of this age demographic reporting some type of cataract development.

Cataracts are most commonly treated with surgery. During cataract surgery, the clouded lens is replaced by a clear, artificial lens. These lenses can also be designed to correct other vision problems, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Cataract surgery has become one of the most efficient medical operations and there are more than three million cataract surgeries performed each year in the United States. While complications are rare, there are some potential risks after cataract surgery, including inflammation, infection, and others.

When should I seek medical attention?

Eye examinations can reveal the early development of cataracts, even if you do not experience any of the symptoms. Cataract development rarely causes long-term eye damage, and it is often advised that patients consider cataract surgery when symptoms begin to develop. It is still wise to receive an in-depth evaluation from a qualified medical professional, who can advise you on any treatment options you may have available. If you are experiencing significant problems with your vision, you should schedule a consultation as soon as possible.

Although aging is statistically the most common cause of cataracts, this ocular condition can be caused by a variety of factors and conditions. In every contributing cause, cataracts are formed by a change to the tissue of the eye’s lens. These can be natural effects of aging, consequences of trauma or injury, or the effects of inherited genetic disorders. Some of the most common causes of cataracts are broken down as follows:


As with many other body parts and organs, the eyes are prone to deterioration and degradation over time. Lens proteins change as a natural result of aging, but also due to factors such as toxins, radiation, UV light, and various other environmental conditions.

Trauma & Injury

Injuries and blunt force trauma to the eyes can cause swelling and thickening of the eye’s lens, as well as tears and cuts, which can potentially whiten the lens fibers and cause cataracts.

Sunlight and Radiation

Long-term exposure to ultraviolet light and exposure to radiation can cause cataracts due to their destructive properties.

Genetic disorder and skin disease

There are several genetic disorders and hereditary eye conditions that can contribute to cataracts. These can include glaucoma, uveitis, and other conditions. Skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis and eczema can also affect the eyes and lead to the development of cataracts.
