Cataracts are the clouding of the eye's natural lens. In recent years, a great deal of progress has been made in the treatment of cataracts, and our ophthalmologists can usually offer you a solution as soon as you begin to have complaints. Glasses and eye drops cannot remove the cloudiness. The only solution for cataracts is to remove the lens which has become opaque and to replace it with an artificial lens. A cataract operation is performed during a short stay or as an outpatient procedure.
