The most common symptoms of cataracts are a gradual decrease in vision and glare. Usually the decision to remove a cataract is based on the symptoms - once a person can no longer see well enough to do regular activities. Surgery is often performed on an outpatient basis. Using a local anesthetic, an incision is made and the opacified lens is removed. A clear, intraocular lens implant is inserted in its place. After surgery, new glasses are generally required.
