Cataracts cause progressive painless loss of vision. The lens clouds naturally with
age so that, in general, people over the age of 65 usually a gradual reduction in
their vision. In younger people, cataracts can come from injury, certain
medications or illnesses such as diabetes. Ultraviolet light may play a role in
cataract formation. Smoking cigarettes has also been linked to cataract

effective way to deal with cataracts. The procedure is generally painless. It is one

For patients who are having cataract surgery and have glaucoma as well.
This laser is applied to the ciliary processes (the area where the fluid is
made in the eye) so that fluid production is decreased. This in turn, lowers
the pressure inside the eye.
