Cataract Surgery

Our oph­thal­mol­o­gy prac­tice offers all the lat­est and most advanced tech­nolo­gies and cataract sur­gi­cal tech­niques to restore your vision. We now pro­vide lens implants that will allow you not only to see well at dis­tance again, but also see up close and at com­put­er dis­tances as well, all with the same eye! These mul­ti­fo­cal lens­es can be a won­der­ful option for those who wish to have even greater spec­ta­cle inde­pen­dence.

Cataracts cause the lens of the eye to become cloudy, which caus­es blur­ry vision that can’t be fixed by pre­scrip­tion glass­es or con­tact lens­es.

With mil­lions of cataract surg­eries per­formed each year in the US, this pro­ce­dure is one of the safest. Dur­ing surgery, we will use an ultra­sound device or laser to help break up the cloudy lens into small pieces. Then these small pieces are care­ful­ly removed through gen­tle suc­tion.

After the cloudy lens has been removed, we will replace it with an arti­fi­cial lens implant. Once the cataract has been removed and the lens implant has been placed, stitch­es are usu­al­ly not required and a pro­tec­tive patch is rarely placed over the eye. The whole pro­ce­dure is per­formed in an out­pa­tient set­ting and only takes about 15 min­utes to com­plete.

Before get­ting cataract surgery we will per­form a thor­ough eye exam­i­na­tion to check the health of your eye and to make sure you are a can­di­date for treat­ment. We will also need to take mea­sure­ments of your eye to deter­mine the extent of any near­sight­ed­ness, far­sight­ed­ness or astig­ma­tism you may have which will help us select the best lens implant pow­er for you. We will also talk to you about what you can expect dur­ing and after your pro­ce­dure and how to care for your eye as it heals.

If you have any con­cerns or ques­tions regard­ing your upcom­ing cataract surgery, we are here for you. Nev­er hes­i­tate to give us a call or sched­ule a con­sul­ta­tion to make sure that you know as much about your surgery as pos­si­ble. Our goal is to make sure you feel com­fort­able and hap­py with the care you are receiv­ing.
