Description of Age-Related Eye Conditions: Cataracts Lecture

This lecture details the anatomy of the eye, what a cataract actually is and how it affects vision. The Ophthalmologist's ability to see into the eye should approximate the patient's ability to see outward. They look in through the cataract; the patient looks out through the cataract using special devices such as a PAM (Potential Acuity Meter) and Laser Interferometer. Cataracts should be addressed before other problems can be dealt with to maximize a person's vision, making sure no other explanation exists for the vision loss. Laser surgery, a much more expensive surgery is discussed along with cataract prevention. The detailed IOL (Intraocular lens) surgery description ensures the patient fully understands the surgery procedure.
