Cataract Surgery Thank You

Thank you for your interest in Cataract Surgery!

Congratulations on starting your journey to better vision! We’ve received your request and one of our team members will reach out to you with next steps and to schedule a consultation with one of our highly-skilled cataract surgeons.

So, what happens now?

When you arrive at your scheduled appointment, our doctors will use several techniques and tests to help diagnose your cataracts. First, your doctor may ask you about your symptoms and any recent changes in your vision. To detect a cataract, your ophthalmologist will likely dilate your eyes so you may want to have someone available to drive you home.

If your doctor finds a cataract they take into consideration its size, your age, and your overall health. This allows them to determine if treating the cataract with surgery might be the right option for you.

Learn Your Lens Options

Cataract surgery involves removing a clouded lens and replacing it with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) to improve your vision but not all IOLs are the same. Unique lenses are available to help patients with multiple corrective zones, astigmatism, and more.>/p>
