Eye Care in Bermuda
Cataracts are opaque, cloudy lenses in the eyes, when (in normal circumstances) the lenses should be clear and transparent. They usually develop in both eyes (typically, with one eye being worse than the other), and are a common condition especially in older people. Cataracts worsen over time, affecting the vision and making daily tasks (such as reading and driving) increasingly difficult.

Causes of cataracts
- Accidental injury to the eye
- Congenital – present from birth
- Excessive exposure to UV radiation
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
- Lifestyle – poor diet and smoking
- Myopia (short-sightedness)
- Prolonged use of steroid or HRT medications
For some, cataracts never become bad enough to impair their vision; yet in many cases, eyesight gradually worsens over time. Surgery is the only effective treatment and has a high success rate in improving vision.
Also known as ‘lens replacement surgery’, cataract surgery entails removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an intraocular lens implant.
Our state-of-the-art facilities and experienced surgeons use the latest techniques to ensure a safe, efficient, and comfortable surgical experience. With this outpatient procedure, which takes less than half an hour, we remove the cloudy lens and replace it with a clear intraocular lens implant. Patients remain awake during the procedure, with the eye area numbed with local anaesthetic.
Patients remain awake during surgery (the eye area being numbed with local anaesthetic); and as the procedure takes less than half an hour, patients are discharged home on the same day.
