Cataract Surgery

Cat-300×209

Our doctors are experienced in small-incision cataract surgery using the latest microsurgical techniques and equipment. A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens of the eye that occurs with age. There are no eye drops or medications that can eliminate or prevent cataracts, but surgically removing the cataract can help you see more clearly again. Usually stitches are not necessary and the surgery usually takes only 15-20 minutes.

Cataract Surgery is one of the most successful operations performed today worldwide. Most patients can resume normal activities and go back to work in a matter of a few days.

We have the latest instruments (Lenstar LS 900) in the office to provide the most accurate calculations to determine the correct implant power for each patient. We offer the latest options in lens implants that reduce your dependence on glasses for distance as well as reading, including lenses that correct Astigmatism (Toric) and multifocal lens implants (that allow you to see for distance as well as reading).

****Our doctors now offer Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery****

This is the very latest advance in making Cataract Surgery safer, more precise and more efficient. 

A complete and thorough examination of the eye is performed prior to surgery and we will advise you if you are a candidate for certain premium lens implants as well as the Laser Cataract Surgery. 

Please note: Premium Lens Implants and use of the Laser to assist in Cataract Surgery are not covered by any Insurance Plan.

We offer comprehensive medical eye examinations for all ages. This includes examinations for glasses, driver’s license forms, and school screening forms. We screen for and evaluate cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, amblyopia, and many other conditions. Some eye conditions can cause permanent damage to your vision even if you don’t feel any pain or other symptoms. The American Academy of Ophthalmology guidelines recommend regular comprehensive medical eye examinations for everyone beginning at age 40 even if you don’t have any symptoms.
