Patients have a one-time opportunity to pick the type of lens he or she would prefer at the time of surgery. Cataract surgery comes around only once and it has become a second chance at great vision. Here at North Shore Eye Care/SightMD, we perform laser cataract surgery with topical anesthesia. Our small incision technique allows for self-sealing wounds. The entire procedure is sutureless. Once the cataract has been removed, our patients are given the option of implanting whichever type of lens he or she feels will be of most benefit to him or her. People who have had to wear glasses or contact lenses their entire lives are given the chance to see extremely well after cataract surgery without the need for glasses. Patients have a choice in cataract surgery.
