Is Elmira Cataract Surgery Right for You?

The development of cataracts can be slow, but the signs tend to be the same no matter the progression: blurry or clouded vision, possible sensitivity to light, glare or halos at night, and even a yellow haze in your eyesight.

Eye cataracts happen to most people during life, and they by no means mark the end of your eyesight, as long as they are addressed in time. Dr. Daniel Sambursky, M.D., F.A.C.S and his team at Ophthalmic Associates use the most advanced surgical techniques on the market to ensure life-changing outcomes when you have cataracts that obstruct your vision.
