Is cloudy vision making it difficult for you to read, watch TV, drive, or see the smile on a loved one's face? You may have cataracts.
Advanced cataract surgery performed by Dr. Jim Montgomery of Montgomery Eye Care in Northglenn, CO, can restore sharp, crystal clear vision.
Why do patients in the greater Denver, Colorado area choose Montgomery Eye Care to improve their eyesight with advanced cataract surgery?
First Off, What Is a Cataract? And How Does It Affect My Eyesight?
- Our eyes have a clear, natural lens behind the iris, or colored section of our eyes. Light passes through the lens to our retina. In turn, the retina sends signals to our brain, creating visual images.
- Age, illness, or injury can cause a progressive clouding of this natural lens. Clouding prevents light from focusing properly on your retina, which can distort your vision.
- Cataract surgery removes the damaged lens and replaces it with a customized artificial lens called an IOL. It is considered the only way to restore a cataract patient's eyesight when noninvasive treatments have failed.
Contact the Montgomery Eye Care ophthalmology team in Northglenn, Colorado, for a consultation if you are experiencing impaired, cloudy vision. The sooner your cataract is diagnosed, the faster our esteemed doctors can determine how quickly surgery is needed to get you seeing clearly again.

Can't I Just Get LASIK Surgery to See Better?
LASIK is a refractive surgery procedure to correct vision problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism by reshaping the cornea. Unfortunately, LASIK will not fix the cloudiness caused by a cataract. Contact our eye care team to learn more about the difference between LASIK and cataract surgery.
