Aging almost always means cataracts -- a clouding of the lens of the eye that results in impaired vision. Luckily, surgeons can remove most cataracts in a relatively simple outpatient operation.

Yale Medicine’s ophthalmologists excel at all forms of cataract surgery. Our doctors use the latest techniques, including small-incision procedures that require no suturing, resulting in faster recovery and better vision. We specialize in cataract removal for patients with complex eye conditions, including corneal disease, glaucoma, and small pupils. Experts in a wide range of eye surgeries, our doctors routinely combine cataract removal with other procedures to minimize time in the surgical suite and speed recovery.

Yale Medicine offers patients outpatient surgery, anesthesia eye drops and the latest in imaging, assessment and diagnostic tools. Our doctors are deeply committed to restoring as much of your sight as possible with minimal discomfort and fuss.
