What is a Cataract?
A cataract is a clouding of the lens 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 most technologically advanced cataract removal surgery on the market today, by using Femtosecond laser technology. This elective procedure represents a paradigm shift in cataract removal surgery, which includes a significant number of additional services to ensure the most advanced results possible.
For non-elective cataract removal procedures, we offer the latest techniques and products in cataract surgery. Our standard procedure makes tiny self-sealing entries into the eye where the cataract is painlessly removed. We then replace the cataract clouded lenses with intraocular lenses. These lenses enable you to see both distant and near, and often result in a decreased need for spectacles after surgery.
