Ask A Life After Cataract Surgery Cataracts are like grey hair and bifocals... everyone gets them. So what the heck is a cataract? When the natural lens inside the eye gets yellow and cloudy, you've developed a cataract. The lens acts like a filter and protects us against the harmful light in our environment. Over time, this absorption of UV light turns the lens a yellowish milky color. Patients with cataracts can experience blur, halos, difficulty with glare especially during night time driving. Jen Keller O.D. the Doctor When cataracts create enough blur that vision can no longer be corrected with glasses, it's time to get those cataracts out. During cataract surgery, the doctors remove the old cloudy lens with a crystal clear new artificial lens. The result...much clearer and brighter vision. That crisper and brighter vision is a plus. But here's what we want you to know. Remember that internal lens? Remember how it's function was to filter out UV and other harmful light? Now that the lens has been removed, you no longer have the PARK RAPIDS WALKER EYE CLINIC ability to filter out those harmful rays.

Also. keep in mind our electronic devices are putting out harmful blue light, which is not being filtered out after cataract surgery.
