As we age, the health of our eyes can suffer. One of the most common eye conditions related to aging is cataracts. A cataract is the clouding of your eye's lens that can cause difficulty seeing, even with contact lenses or glasses. Our ophthalmologists can perform surgery to remove the clouded lens and restore your vision. Our Hobart practice also offers state-of-the-art IOLs to replace your natural lens and treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Deen-Gross Eye center was one of the first to use IOLs during cataract surgery.
