Cataracts cause changes to the lens in your eye which makes your sight cloudy and misty. Cataracts are treated by surgery, during which the cloudy lens is removed and replaced by an artificial lens.

Although most people have a good level of clear vision following their cataract surgery, the thought of an operation on your eye may be worrying. 

We’ve put together a guide to the condition and what to expect during surgery.

Our Understanding Cataracts guide is accredited by the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. It's designed to give you a detailed understanding of your eye condition and helpful advice on next steps.
