The human eye can be compared to a sophisticated camera, whose purpose is to bring images from the outside to the retina. The cornea and crystalline lens are essentially living tissue responsible for this process.

In addition, thanks to the crystalline lens, we are able to read and focus on objects up close.

Under normal conditions the crystalline lens is transparent, but with the passage of time this transparency can be progressively lost; the lens may become opaque, preventing light from reaching the back of the eye and making images appear blurry.

In recent years, there has been a marked increase in the number of cataract surgeries performed. This increase is due, among other causes, to the general aging of the population, increased surgical success, improvement of the methods used, rapid recovery of vision, growing need to see better, etc.

Cataract surgery offers the patient the ability to improve various aspects of their life, for example:

-reading and working up close
-work, leisure, and driving
-vision without correction for near and far sight defects
-ability to see color
-decreased glare problems
-improved ability to see objects in relief
