Cataract Surgery

The cure for cataracts

Here are some symptoms you may experience if you have cataracts:

  • Cloudy or blurry vision
  • Sensitivity to light and glare with a halo appearing around lights
  • Trouble seeing at night
  • Colors fading
  • Frequent prescription changes in your glasses or contact lenses
  • Double vision

Cataracts can also worsen from smoking, prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light and various diseases. With our safe and effective cataract surgery, we remove your eye’s clouded lens and replace it with a clear artificial lens implant. Surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, under local anesthesia and doesn’t require an overnight hospital stay. We offer two treatments for cataracts and can help determine which one is right for you.

Enhanced Technology Lenses

We carry a selection of enhanced lens implants for patients undergoing cataract removal. The standard recovery time following cataract or refractive lens exchange is 1 to 2 days. To ensure proper healing and long-term improvement to your vision, you’ll need to avoid heavy lifting, using swimming pools and hot tubs, and participating in any contact sports.

YAG Laser treatment

YAG laser treatment is one of the safest cataract treatments available. Also known as a YAG laser capsulotomy, YAG removes secondary cataracts to effectively and painlessly eliminate the hazy posterior capsule from your line of sight. This allows light to pass through normally, which restores your original, clear vision. The YAG laser doesn’t actually make any incisions or “cuts” into your eye and is totally painless and done in less than 10 minutes.
