Cataracts are extremely common among individuals aged sixty and up. In fact, all people will eventually develop cataracts if they live to be old enough. A cataract is a clouding of the crystalline lens of the eye, and the only way to remove cataracts is through cataract surgery. This is one of the safest procedures available in medicine. At our Los Angeles Cataract Center, Dr. Rex Hamilton meets with each patient to review cataract treatment options that best fit their lifestyle needs; he is world-renowned for Premium Cataract Surgery and has helped thousands of patients achieve better vision after their cataracts have been removed.
Cataract surgery with Rex Hamilton, M.D. involves the removal of the clouded lens, which is then replaced with a synthetic intraocular lens (IOL). Depending on a patient’s lifestyle preferences, there are various types of IOLs that can help patients to correct presbyopia or to restore distance, intermediate, and near vision.
