Cataracts are a clouding of the lens in they eye, caused by a buildup of protein in the lens . This prevents light from passing clearly through the lens, causing some loss of vision. Since new lens cells form on the outside of the lens, all the older cells are compacted into the center of the lens resulting in the cataract.
If you have Cataracts, some of the common symptoms that you may experience are: clouded, blurred or dim vision, difficulty with vision at night, sensitivity to light/glare, seeing "halos" around lights and/or double vision in a single eye.

Pre-operative Ocular Health and Surface Assessment
Diagnosis and treatment of dry eye syndrome, which is a common condition is particularly important prior to cataract surgery to allow accurate measurements for IOL (intraocular lens) calculations. Dry eye syndrome left untreated prior to surgery can worsen postoperatively, increase your chance of infection and negatively affect your visual outcome.
