CORNEAL & CATARACT SURGERY
Restoring Clear Vision
Cataracts don't discriminate; they happen to almost everyone as they age and can develop rapidly or gradually. But cloudy or blurred vision doesn't have to interfere with your quality of life. Our surgeon uses state-of-the-art technology to provide quick and effective cataract removal procedures. Not only can the surgery remove cataracts, but it can also correct a range of refractive errors like myopia, hyperopia, presbyopia, and astigmatism.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Cataract surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, and most people return to their normal activities within a week of treatment. The duration of the surgery is approximately 20 minutes per eye.
Here's what's involved:
After a numbing treatment is applied, a small incision is made in the side of the cornea. The incision is so small that it usually heals itself. Then, ultrasound waves break up the clouded lens to remove it.
The surgeon inserts an intraocular lens (IOL) through the small incision to restore vision. Once inserted, the IOL opens and unfolds, which keeps it securely in place.
Voila! Vision restored
Once the cataract is removed, and the IOL is securely placed, light can travel to the back of your eye. Recovery is quick and generally occurs within a few days.
