Everyone develops cataracts (a clouding of the eye's natural lens) around 50 years of age. Many times cataracts adversely affect vision and interfere with our ability to see clearly to perform daily tasks and do what we like to do. There is no medical treatment to reverse or prevent cataracts. Once they form, the only way to see clearly again is to have them removed. Cataract surgery has improved dramatically. It is a brief, painless out-patient procedure that is effective in restoring vision with minimal restrictions in activities afterwards. Drs. Kloess, Velazquez, and Bartlett are experienced, compassionate eye surgeons who offer every technology available to restore natural vision and enhance the total patient experience. They work with over fifty eye doctors in the community who trust their patients' eye health to us. If you have been told you have cataracts or have not been seeing well lately, call 888-841-EYES (3937) for an appointment at one of our convenient offices in Birmingham/Mountain Brook, Hoover or Alabaster.
