Cataract Surgery

A cataract is a clouding of the lens in your eye. Your lens sits just behind your iris, the coloured part of your eye. Normally your lens is clear and helps to focus the light entering your eye. Developing cataracts will cause your sight to become cloudy and misty. Cataracts can affect one or both eyes. Cataracts are treated by surgery, during which the cloudy lens is removed and replaced by an artificial lens.



Cataracts normally develop very slowly. At first the changes they make to your sight may be difficult to notice, but as they develop and get worse you'll start to notice symptoms as mentioned above. 

Eventually, almost all people with cataracts will discover their sight has turned misty or cloudy, and things have become difficult to see all of the time. 

Cataracts sometimes develop so slowly that you might not notice the changes in your vision, but when you have a regular eye test, your optician may detect them and refer you to a hospital.


At iSIGHT Clinics, there are no long waiting list, you can be treated for your cataract in as little as 2-4 weeks from your referral, with prices from £2800 (per eye).
