As technologies progress, treatment options in eye care are increasing. In the past, cataract surgery with monofocal intraocular lens (IOL) was the only treatment choice available to eliminate cataracts and repair optimal vision. With modern, state-of-the-art innovations, cataract removal surgeries have been included a new spectrum of intraocular lenses.
After standard cataract surgery, patients often need corrective eyeglasses to fix refractive errors, such as astigmatism, nearsightedness, farsightedness, and presbyopia. However, refractive cataract surgery eliminates cataract eye disease and corrects refractive errors.
This procedure become increasingly popular because people tend to select permanent vision correction, as opposed to provisional methods of vision repair like glasses and contact lenses. The risks associated with cataract surgery have reduced over the years, as advanced lasers allow cataract surgeons to make exact incisions with precise measurements.
Who should consider the Cataract Surgery Specialty Clinic visit?
Our eye surgeon will perform a series of tests in order to determine eligibility for refractive cataract surgery if the initial two requirements are met. Testing will also define whether it is medically possible for the patient to totally exclude the need for glasses after treatment. The eye surgeon may decide that a patient will be independent of glasses for distance vision but will still need them for near vision activities such as reading.
What do we offer you at the Cataract Surgery Specialty Clinic?
Our ophthalmologists who are cataract as well as refractive surgeons will use the most advanced technologies and latest devices to treat cataracts. Our experienced optometrists and technicians will take precise measurements of the eye to ensure the best surgical postoperative visual outcomes. They will also take the time to review and recommend the best lens to fulfill your daily professional needs as well as your recreational activities
Choosing the correct IOL power is key especially after previous laser vision correction surgery. Aligning intraocular lenses correctly in the eye is critical to correct astigmatism postoperatively. Modern technologies allow the surgeon to match the ocular data and measurements taken preoperatively in the clinic with the live ones coming from the patient’s eye during the surgery
