Cataract: Causes and Treatment |

Dr. Richard Simon, Ophthalmologist with Baptist Outpatient Services, explains cataract is a little and hazy film. About the symptoms, he says you won’t feel anything in your eye, the only thing that will happen is that you will have vision that’s not clear.

“Now I do need to make it clear every cataract does not need surgery. Everybody in my office at 61 is gonna have something; it only needs to be addressed when the vision really stinks,” he highlights.
