Our team is dedicated to helping our patients overcome cataracts and astigmatism using the latest technology and techniques.
Cataracts cloud the natural lens of the eye. This happens when the proteins that make up the lens clump together and opacify. Cataracts are most common in people over the age of 60. Cataracts form slowly over a period of many years, and are easily removed during a routine surgery
The diagnosis of cataracts can help us create a treatment plan. There are different types of cataracts, and each may mean a slightly different surgery. If you suspect you have cataracts, be sure to contact your eye doctor as soon as possible. You don’t have to live with blurry vision!
Your surgery cost may be covered by insurance. Contact us to find out. We strive to make cataract surgery as accessible as possible to our patients. Be sure to give us a call to schedule your cataract consultation. One of our cataract surgery coordinators will be able to walk you through the cost of cataract surgery.
SightMD is one of the first centers to offer all-laser cataract surgery. Our CATALYS® Precision Laser offers greater precision and safety during your cataract surgery. Cataract surgery can be nerve-wracking, especially for those who are not comfortable with having a blade near their eyes. If that’s you, consider scheduling an all-laser cataract surgery procedure with SightMD!
We use the ORA System® to take additional measurements to better determine your intraocular lens (IOL) power. If you suffer with cataracts, we can help you achieve the clear, dependable vision you deserve. There is no need to live life with blurry vision, especially when SightMD is here to make your cataract surgery experience as easy and effective as possible. We are committed to providing the best that cataract surgery technology has to offer.

Patients with astigmatism and cataracts have blurry vision both from the clouding of their cataracts and an abnormal cornea shape. With a combination of cataract surgery, implant lenses for astigmatism (Toric) and corneal relaxing incisions patients can enjoy improved vision. Advanced cataract surgery techniques in addition to revolutionary IOL design allow astigmatic cataract patients to see better than they ever have before!
Many of our patients take blood thinners as a result of other health conditions. In the past, this would have excluded you from cataract surgery. Advancements in technology have made it possible for patients on blood thinners to safely undergo cataract surgery. Our sophisticated tools and techniques make more patients eligible for cataract surgery than ever before. You no longer have to worry about your required medications to interfere with a vision-saving procedure!
Flomax® can cause the iris to constrict during cataract surgery, complicating the procedure. We have special techniques that make cataract surgery for patients that take Flomax® safer.
Fuchs' dystrophy is a hereditary condition that causes corneal weakness. With special care, our surgeons can protect weak corneas and provide outstanding results.
Cataract patients who suffer with pseudoexfoliation need special care during cataract surgery. This condition causes proteins to collect on the lens of the eye, and weakens supportive structures in the eye. With special precautions, we can provide these patients with successful cataract surgery.
Many people assume that because they already had LASIK, they may not be eligible for cataract surgery. While this depends on the patient, this isn’t always true. The same goes for patients who want LASIK after cataract surgery. In some cases, LASIK can be used after cataract surgery to fine tune your vision, reducing or eliminating the need for glasses or contacts. Meanwhile, patients who develop cataracts after having undergone LASIK can undergo cataract surgery without compromising the effects of LASIK. Are you interested in getting LASIK surgery after cataract surgery or vice versa? Contact our team of experts here st SightMD to determine whether you are a candidate. Say goodbye to blurry vision and glasses!
