Cataract Surgery

During cataract surgery, a small ultrasonic probe is inserted into the eye which breaks up, or emulsifies, the cloudy lens into tiny pieces and gently aspirates those pieces out of the eye. We perform this minimally invasive, small-incision, no-stitch cataract surgery called phacoemulsification (“phaco”) surgery. To make your procedure as painless as possible, anesthesia is a combination of local and/or topical along with IV sedation. With the recent advance of foldable IOLs, artificial lenses can be implanted through the same small incision that is created in the phaco procedure. It is an outpatient surgery and is not only one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures in the United States, but it is also one of the safest and most successful surgical procedures that you can have.

Cataract Surgery

Premium intraocular lenses (IOLs):

We are pleased to offer a variety of intraocular lenses for our cataract patients, from basic IOLs to the latest in accommodating, multifocal IOLs with night vision improvement. In addition to eliminating the cloudiness of cataracts, certain IOLs can improve refractive errors such as near- or far-sightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia and eliminate or significantly reduce your dependence on eye glasses.

There are many different lenses to choose from, talk with us about which IOL is right for you.
