A cataract surgeon can remove cataracts, according to All About Vision. An ophthalmologist may be able help determine which surgeon would be the best option for the surgery.
Cataract removal has become a standard operation now. Once the optometrist determines that cataract removal is needed, he or she may be able to give some insight into local surgeons who have good reputations. Family and friends may also be able to give opinions. Determining which type of surgery is needed will also help decide on a surgeon. Some cataract surgeons are more skilled at using newer technology while others are better at standard procedures. Before deciding on a doctor, have a consultation and look at the facilities.
