You have cataracts. Your doctor has a great way to correct your vision.
Cataracts are a natural part of the aging process and will eventually develop in all of us. In fact, cataract surgery is the most commonly performed procedure in the United States with over 3 million procedures annually.
As you grow older, the lens in your eye can stiffen, harden and become cloudy. Since the lens is no longer as flexible or as clear as it used to be, the eye can't focus light properly. This makes it difficult to see as clearly as you once did. Luckily, cataracts have become a "normal" problem to rectify. In an outpatient procedure, your ophthalmologist can replace your eye’s lens with an artificial lens, called an intraocular lens (IOL), resulting in a dramatic restoration of your sight.
Today's advancements in medical procedures allow eye surgeons to correct your cataracts using the best technologies available. In many cases, cataract surgery may reduce the need for eye glasses. It is important to understand that since everyone's vision, expectations, and lifestyles differ, it is difficult to determine how much you will be dependent on glasses after surgery.

Important Safety Information
Indications: enVista is indicated for use in patients for visual correction after cataract removal.
Cataract surgery is not completely risk-free. Complications may occur as a result of the removal of your cataract whether or not an intraocular lens is implanted.
Complications of cataract surgery range from minor, usually temporary side effects, to sight-threatening complications. Fortunately, significant sight-threatening complications are extremely rare and include, but are not limited to: infection, hemorrhage, and retinal detachment. People with existing medical conditions such as diabetes and chronic eye infections are at a higher risk of developing complications.
The risks of implantation with the enVista AO IOL include the same risks that exist for all cataract surgery with IOL implantation.
The long term safety and effectiveness of this lens have not been proven. The safety of the enVista IOL has not been substantiated in patients with preexisting conditions.
