A cataract is a cloudy area that occurs in the lens of the eye. Because cataracts are a normal part of aging, all men and women are at risk for them. In fact, about half of all Americans over age 65 have cataracts or have already had surgery to remove them. Dr. Gerber brings expertise and innovative, sight-restoring technology to the process of cataract surgery. He has performed thousands of successful cataract surgeries. With this simple outpatient procedure, your cataract is removed and a state-of-the-art lens is implanted to restore your vision.
