Cataract Extractions

Cataract Extractions

Cataracts are the most common cause of reversible blindness worldwide. With the passage of time, the lens you were born with, which focuses light upon the retina, tends to become cloudy and interfere with vision. The problem can be eliminated with surgery to remove the cloudy lens and replace it with a clear, artificial lens.

Patients may resume most normal activities the same day. Patients may resume driving the next day when the relaxing medication wears off or as vision improves. Cataract surgery is performed at the Ambulatory Surgery Center of Cape Cod, Heritage Park, Sandwich MA.

"Dr. Townshend, Being so afraid during my cataract surgery, I felt your concern for me. Please know that I appreciated your tender approach. Thank you and your warm staff."
