MYTH:  Cataract Surgery is Painful

FACT:  It can be uncomfortable, but shouldn't hurt.  After sedating you, the doctor will numb your eye, make a small incision through which the cataract can be broken up with ultrasound, and replace the clouded lens with a synthetic one.  4 out of 5 people in the new AARP-Alcon Eye Health Study report that the surgery was EASIER than they expected!!  Don't put up with decreased vision due to cataracts - make an appointment with Dr. Marden today to discuss cataract surgery!
