Each surgeon at Eye Care Physicians & Surgeons is certified by The American Board of Ophthalmology. Our physicians will recommend surgical procedures only after careful review and evaluation of your vision care options. If you select a surgery option, our highly-trained and experienced surgical support team will thoroughly review the procedure with you and help you make the appropriate appointments, transportation arrangements, and follow-up care visits.
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.
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 is a monofocal lens that is designed to correct both cataracts and astigmatism at the same time.
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.
Vivity® is a intraocular lens that provides cataract patients with a continuous range of vision — for distant and intermediate tasks, while also providing you with functional near vision. These implants can reduce your need for glasses when performing up-close tasks such as using your smartphone or reading a menu with inadequate light. These lenses mitigate the effects of presbyopia by providing an extended depth of focus and provide improved intermediate and near vision, while maintaining comparable distance vision.
Vivity® will also correct aphakia in adult patients with corneal astigmatism whom have had a cataractous lens removed by extracapsular cataract extraction.
