Cataracts are a cloudy and opaque film which begins to develop on the surface of the natural lens of your eye. Over time, this region will grow in size and depth, blocking the passage of light into the eye. This stops the flow of information to the retina and into the optic nerves, creating blurry vison and eventual blindness without proper treatment and surgical removal. Today, refractive surgery is helping more patients suffering from cataracts to see clearly than ever before. The main goal of this procedure is to remove the natural lens of the eye and thusly the cataract, and then replace this natural material with an artificial intraocular lens.

In the past an IOL could only be made in a single power, allowing for optical correction at only one level of distance.
