Cataracts and Lens Implants

The need for cataract surgery varies for each patient. It often becomes necessary when your vision begins to interfere with your daily routine. As you get older, the proteins in your eye can change causing parts of the natural lens in your eye to turn cloudy. This is known as a cataract. It can make things look blurry or give them a brownish tint.

Cataracts are a leading cause of blindness, especially in older people. But they can be corrected through surgery. Modern cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures. Our surgeons use small incision, no stitch techniques in our state-of­-the-art surgery center. Most patients are in and out of surgery within three hours and able to resume normal activities quickly. Concerns about having cataract surgery are normal. By using the latest in medical technology, this surgical procedure is safe and comfortable, with a quick patient recovery time.

Lens Implants

Each eye has a lens — a clear protein and water substance that sits behind the pupil. The lens focuses light onto the retina, which sends it to your brain. An intraocular lens implant is an artificial replacement for the lens of your eye. It is part of the surgery to fix cataracts.

There are several different lens types:

Toric
Toric is a monofocal lens that is designed to correct both cataracts and astigmatism at the same time.

PanOptix®
PanOptix® are multifocal lenses that can repair cataracts, correct vision for near, far and in-between. This is your best chance at freedom from glasses. 

LenSx®
LenSx® is a revolutionary laser procedure for patients with cataracts that creates a circular opening for a lens to be implanted.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a condition that requires lifelong monitoring and treatment. While there is no “cure” for glaucoma, early detection and ongoing treatment can control the disease process. Eye Care’s physicians will work with you to find the best treatment plan for you. Treatment for glaucoma can include medication and/or surgery. Glaucoma surgery may be performed using a laser or conventional surgical techniques. The kind of surgery your Eye Care physician recommends or advises depends on many factors, including the type and severity of your glaucoma and your other eye problems or health conditions.
