Cataracts can occur at any age but the most common type is age-related cataracts. The lens of the eye becomes cloudy, causing blurred vision because your cataract is like a frosted glass, interfering with your sight.

The vast majority of cataracts can be treated successfully by removing the lens and replacing with a plastic lens. This procedure is carried out by the eye inpatients and eye surgery department and you may also attend one of our general outpatients clinics.
