The laser cataract surgery is a very simple, fast and safe intervention. The laser breaks up the cataract in less than a minute and the patient regains vision immediately without hassles. Cataracts form when the lens, the part of the eye that allows us to focus, becomes opaque. Cataracts may be congenital or due to disease and usually occur from age 50. Age at which an annual review is recommended.
