Join Dr. Kevin Shah from Eye Consultants of PA to learn more about cataracts and simple tips for keeping your vision in top notch condition.
Did you know? Cataracts are very common, particularly as we get older, but they require specialized experience. Not all cataract patients require surgery; but if you do, cataract removal is one of the most common, safest and effective types of operations performed in the United States. Recent advancements in surgical techniques and intraocular lens technology have ushered in a new era of cataract surgery — one with more minimally invasive options, quicker recoveries and better outcomes for more people.
