Cataract and Refractive Lens Exchange Surgery Center
A first-of-its-kind premium cataract and intraocular lens surgery center, SightTrust Eye Institute provides customized vision correction plans for patients with or without lens changes, who have hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness), and astigmatism, using the most advanced technology available in the field. SightTrust was among the first practices to offer laser-assisted cataract surgery and is one of the only centers in the country to exclusively perform laser-assisted lens surgery on every patient. Additionally, Dr. Shatz is a pioneer in bilateral same-day cataract and lens surgery – treating both eyes with separate procedures on the same day, having been performing this technique for over a decade. Over 95% of our patients choose this option, that has both proven to be safe and improves recovery time, getting you back to your activities even faster!
In addition to cataract and lens exchange procedures, SightTrust Eye Institute specializes in phakic intraocular lens implantation – placing a “contact lens” inside the eye to treat myopia and/or astigmatism. This procedure is a terrific alternative to laser vision correction for those who either are not LASIK candidates, suffer from dry eyes, or prefer a “reversible” option.
