What is a Cataract?
A cataract is a clouding of the lens (see graphic below) in the eye leading to a decrease in vision. It can affect one or both eyes. Often it develops slowly. Symptoms may include faded colors, blurry vision, halos around light, trouble with bright lights, and trouble seeing at night. This may result in trouble driving, reading, or recognizing faces. Poor vision may also result in an increased risk of falling and depression. Cataracts are the cause of half of blindness and 33% of visual impairment worldwide.
What We Do
We offer the latest techniques and products in cataract surgery. Two small incision, phacoemulsification, with multifocal intra-ocular lens implants are routinely used by our surgeons. These modern techniques and products often result in a decreased need for spectacles after surgery.
Starting in November, 2015, we will begin offering the most technologically advanced cataract removal surgery on the market today, by using Femtosecond laser technology. This technology will represent a paradigm shift in cataract removal surgery, and we will package this premium procedure with a significant number of additional services to ensure the most advanced results possible.
