Cataract and Refractive Lens Exchange Surgery Center
A first-of-its-kind cataract and premium intraocular lens surgery center, SightTrust Eye Institute provides customized vision correction plans for patients with lens changes, hyperopia (farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness), and astigmatism, using the most advanced technology available in the field. SightTrust was among the first ophthalmic centers to offer laser-assisted cataract surgery, and is one of the only centers in the country to exclusively perform laser-assisted cataract surgery on every patient. And for those patients who qualify, Dr. Shatz offers bilateral same day cataract surgery – both eyes at the same time!
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, hyperopia, and/or astigmatism. This procedure is a terrific alternative to laser vision correction for those who either are not LASIK candidates or prefer a “reversible” option.
