If you are having trouble with night driving, glare from headlights, golf, reading, watching TV or any of the things you like to do and feel your lifestyle has been impaired due to these issues, you may be experiencing the early stages of developing cataracts. The natural lens inside the eye is normally transparent and a cataract is the clouding of this natural lens. Glasses or contact lenses cannot sharpen your vision if a cataract is present.
Cataracts are a normal part of the aging process. Most people will develop cataracts if they live long enough. There is no medical treatment to reverse or prevent the development of cataracts. Once they form, the only way to see clearly again is to have them removed and replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL). In general, when your vision starts to interfere with your daily activities and lifestyle, it is time to think about having cataract surgery. Cataracts will typically not damage the eye while growing, so you can decide when the time is right for you to have cataract surgery.
Cataract surgery is a very successful operation. Three million people have this procedure every year and greater than 95% have a successful result. As with any surgical procedure, complications can occur during or after surgery and some are severe enough to limit vision. But in most cases, vision, as well as the quality of life, improves.

Always professional - always 'top notch'. Dr. Keller and the staff are always respectful and kind. I feel that Dr. Keller is an excellent eye surgeon that I can trust.
Pre and post cataract surgery followup with BES staff was excellent. All staff members were very knowledgeable and efficient as I called several times with questions. Surgery with Dr. Cuevas was excellent and I am very happy so far with results. Dr. Cuevas was clear and transparent with answers to my post-surgery questions and spent substantial time with me pre-surgery to make sure we came up with the best solution to meet my athletic vision requirements. I highly recommend Boulder Eye Surgeons.
Dr. Keller was extremely responsive to my concerns. We had a great conversation! I also liked the new informational videos that played while I was waiting.
Great results from surgery, friendly staff, and physicians. All questions answered well and easy to understand.
The professionalism of the entire staff is impressive. Dr. Nichols spent adequate time with me explaining everything thoroughly. My daughter came with me and he took the time to address her concerns and answer her questions. The Optical department is just as 5 star as the rest of the practice. I am so grateful to these people for how they are addressing my problems with my eyes which involve a complex medical condition.
As usual, everyone was very helpful and professional.
I have the greatest respect for the entire team at Boulder Eye Surgeons.
