What Texans Should Know about Cataract Surgery
Date:8/18/2009

get="_new">LASIK or other laser refractive surgery, it's important to provide your pre-surgery vision correction prescription to your Eye M.D., if possible. (The record of this prescription is also called the "K card.")

About Cataract: As we age, the eye's lens slowly becomes less flexible, less transparent and thicker. Then areas of the lens become cloudy; if left in place until the "overripe" stage, the cataract would be completely white and block vision. Cataracts often develop in both eyes at about the same time. By age 75 about 70 percent of people have cataracts.
