Cataract surgery is one of our most frequent surgical procedures performed at our surgery center. We provide modern small incision, sutureless, no-shot cataract surgery with foldable, intraocular lenses.
As the cataract surgery is performed, the natural lens is removed and a lens implant is placed. Options for cataract surgery currently include choices among different lens implant options. A basic intraocular lens implant focuses at one distance primarily and can be chosen to focus on distance or at near. Often no glasses will be necessary to focus on the chosen distance.
For those who have significant astigmatism (curvature of the cornea), a toric intraocular lens implant is an excellent option to reduce the dependence on glasses after cataract surgery.
A newer lens option is called the "extended depth of focus lens" and is meant to help the eye focus at distance and also at intermediate near after cataract surgery. This type of lens implant also can correct astigmatism.
