For more than 55 years, the pioneering surgeons of Berkeley Eye Center have helped set the standard in cataract care in Texas and around the world. Even though our methods of cataract removal and lens implantation are embraced globally by colleagues and patients alike, our focus remains right here at home in Houston on your vision.

Cataracts are a natural part of the aging process of the eye. Over fifty percent of people over the age of 60 (and quite a few younger than that) suffer from cataracts. Almost everyone develops cataracts as they grow older. Cataract formations occur at different rates and can affect one or both eyes.

A cataract is a progressive clouding of the eye’s natural lens. It interferes with light passing through the eye to the retina. Aging and other factors cause proteins in the eye’s lens to clump together forming these cloudy areas. Early changes may not disturb vision, but over time cataracts typically result in blurred or fuzzy vision and sensitivity to light, which makes activities like night driving and reading more difficult. People with progressed cataracts often say they feel as if they’re looking through a waterfall or a piece of wax paper.

Cataract eye surgery is a very common and medically necessary procedure to remove and replace the eye’s natural lens when the vision has been clouded by a cataract. We offer laser-assisted cataract surgery and lifestyle lenses as options for our patients.

A cataract is the clouding of the eye’s natural lens. Most cataracts develop with advancing age, typically between ages 60-80. People with cataracts see the world as if through a dirty window, making daily activities more difficult.

During the consultation, we will ask you about your eye health history and your medications, and perform some tests. During one of the tests, your eyes will be dilated. You will then be examined by the surgeon who will discuss your treatment options. We will take the time to explain cataracts, the procedures and the available lens options.
 
The length of this appointment is usually two hours and your personal Patient Counselor will help you throughout the process. Your Counselor can review insurance and payment options and schedule you for surgery and related appointments, such as post-operative exams.

If you have any questions regarding a condition or treatment or one of our hospitals please let us know, and we will get back to you very soon.

Most cataracts are highly treatable. Cataract surgery is one of the most common surgeries performed in the United States, with approximately 98% of patients experiencing improved vision if there are no other eye conditions present.

Two very small incisions (one larger, approximately three millimeters, or one-tenth of an inch, and one smaller, approximately one millimeter, or one thirty-second of an inch) are made in the cornea , which is the transparent dome-shaped tissue that covers the front part of the eye. A viscous (thick, sticky, glue-like) material is injected into the front part of the eye to help maintain its shape during surgery. This viscous material is made from substances that occur naturally in the body. Because it is thick, this material will not leak out of the incisions during surgery.

The surgeon creates an opening in the natural "sac" or "bag" that holds the lens in place, called the lens capsule. The lens is separated from the lens capsule by using a balanced salt solution.

Clarivu, the name of our lens replacement surgery , is a sophisticated development of cataract surgery, the world’s most frequently performed surgical procedure. Clarivu eye lens replacement surgery, also known as Refractive Lens Exchange, Refractive Lens Replacement or Clear Lens Surgery, is a procedure where the natural lens of the eye is permanently replaced with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). This proven procedure has been performed thousands of times and typically takes just 20 minutes per eye.
