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).

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.
