Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is a procedure utilized to remove the lens of your eye and, in most cases, replace it with an artificial lens. Normally, the lens of your eye is clear and a cataract causes the lens to become cloudy, which eventually causes blurry vision, colors are muted and you can experience increased glare from lights.

Dr. Freeman performs cataract surgery on an outpatient basis, which means you don't have to stay in the hospital after the surgery. Cataract surgery is the most common surgery performed every year in the entire world and is generally a very safe procedure.
