About Cataracts

As we age, the lenses of our eyes tend to naturally become slightly cloudy. This is known as a cataract, and in some cases, it can impair vision enough that it requires surgery. Refractive cataract surgery, traditional cataract surgery, and YAG capsulotomy are procedures performed by the experts at Vance Thompson Vision in Fargo, ND. Discover which of these treatments could be used to resolve your cataracts and restore your vision.
