What is a Cataract?

A cataract occurs when the eye’s natural crystalline lens becomes cloudy. This is a natural event that occurs for many people in their 60s. It is believed that UV exposure plays a role, as well as certain vitamin deficiencies and medications.

When a patient has a cataract, they will often experience glare and haloes, difficulty reading, difficulty driving at night, and a yellowing of colors. Fortunately, cataract surgery has advanced immensely over the past several decades.

Our cataract surgeon, ophthalmologist Michael Rom, MD offers cataract exams at both our Mentor and Chardon Ohio offices. He has helped thousands of Mentor cataract surgery patients and the surrounding area get the clear cataract free vision they deserve.
