A cataract is the inevitable clouding of the natural lens of the eye resulting in blurred vision.
A cataract is the natural clouding of the eye’s lens as we age, but the process can be accelerated by diabetes, smoking and prolonged exposure to sunlight. Cataracts affect millions of people world-wide and treating them with the insertion of an intraocular lens (IOL) is the single most commonly performed surgical eye procedure in the world.
Cataract removal is a painless, quick, proven method of restoring vision and can be carried out by one of our sub-specialised cataract surgeons at our Re:Vision Day-Case Theatre in Auckland. As well as eliminating the cloudy cataract, this popular procedure gives you the option of correcting the focus of your eyes to reduce or in some cases eliminate the need for glasses. A wide range of special lenses are available to improve astigmatism and give a greater range of focus without reading glasses.
If you have cataracts or are experiencing changes in your vision, do contact Re:Vision, the cataract specialists at 0800 55 20 20 to schedule your eye exam today, and discuss how best we can assist you in restoring your vision.
The cataract procedure requires no stitches and allows most patients to return to their normal activities within a day or so.
Your surgeon will painlessly remove the clouded lens and replace it with a clear, high-definition intraocular lens (IOL), which will successfully restore your vision.
As the Western world’s most common surgical procedure, more advanced IOLs are being developed each year to make the cataract procedure even easier for patients than it is now and offer even better vision results.
As a leading provider of cataract surgery in Auckland, we use premier IOLs including astigmatism-reducing (toric) IOLs and depth of focus enhancing (multifocal and blended-vision) IOLs to often add a whole new freedom of vision without glasses.
Insurance companies all cover cataract surgery. Re:Vision is an Affiliated Provider with Southern Cross Healthcare with a simple automatic approval process. Our friendly staff will help to make the whole process stress-free, including helping our self-funding patients with easy-payment plans if desired.

You may think that LASIK or laser eye surgery is expensive. While it isn’t cheap, you might be surprised to learn how much money you save when compared to a lifetime of buying glasses or contacts.
LASIK proves a superior investment over the course of 20 years or less, depending on how much you spend on glasses or contacts. Not to mention you will enjoy the added benefit of not requiring to wear glasses or put in contacts every day.
