The Best Refractive Cataract Surgery Options

If you are planning to have surgery to remove a cataract, you now have a new and innovative option—an implantable lens that makes it possible to treat the cataract and correct the corneal astigmatism at the same time. The operation itself entails making a tiny incision in the eye. Through this incision, the surgeon inserts an instrument about the size of a pen tip.

This instrument breaks the cloudy lens into pieces and removes them from the eye. Once the cataract is removed, a cataract replacement lens is inserted through the same tiny incision and set into position to replace the natural lens.

Leading the Way in Outstanding Results

The good news is that you’ve encountered cataracts at a time when intraocular lens technology has taken great leaps of progress. Traditionally, the replacement lens used for cataract surgery was a monofocal IOL. This lens restored good functional distance vision, but people still needed to continue wearing distance and reading glasses.

Today, you also have the option of different multifocal lenses, which can improve vision in a full range of distances, from near, intermediate and far. This lens provides quality distance vision, independent of eyeglasses and contact lenses, giving our patients more freedom and relief from their cataracts. During your consultation, we’ll consider:

  • The extent and severity of your vision problems.
  • Your desire to save money and inconvenience of eyeglasses and contacts.
