Cataract Surgery

Cataract Surgery

We perform the latest technique of small incision, no shot, no patch cataract surgery. It is performed as outpatient surgery. We typically do not require our patients to have an IV placed, although monitored anesthesia care with an IV is available if needed. We generally prescribe something by mouth to relax you before the procedure. After the procedure, patients generally can return to their usual activities the next day. Medication eye drops are prescribed starting the day before and continue for three to four weeks following the eye surgery procedure. New glasses, if needed, are prescribed three weeks following surgery. The second eye can have surgery, if needed, one to two weeks after the first. We do not perform surgery on the second eye until we are certain that the first eye is doing well.

We offer the latest in intraocular lens implant technology utilizing advanced technology lenses and precision Laser Customization.

A final decision regarding cataract surgery and lens selection should only be made after talking with your surgeon. The surgeon can help you decide after discussing your lifestyle and the specifics regarding your eye surgery.

The medical part of the procedure is usually covered by medical insurance after any deductibles and/or co-payments are met. Medical insurance also usually covers the cost of the standard monofocal lens implant. A monofocal lens implant, allows for good distance vision, provided the patient does not have significant corneal astigmatism, but will typically require reading glasses or bifocals for near vision.

At The Eye and Laser Center, we have 2 ways to treat astigmatism and allow you your best chance of seeing your clearest after surgery. Low to moderate levels of astigmatism can be treated with a precision Laser System. Moderate to high levels of astigmatism are treated with special advanced technology lens implants called Toric intraocular lenses.

Payment plans are available which can allow the patient to pay for any non-covered costs related to the surgical procedure with low interest financing.
