When you’ve been diagnosed with cataracts, it’s important to find a cataract doctor who will take the time to speak with you and answer questions. At SightTrust Eye Institute, our cataract doctor, Dr. Andrew Shatz, will take the time to examine you, discuss his findings, answer your questions, and explain the process of cataract surgery. Our cataract doctor does a wonderful job of making you feel confident about the cataract procedure. Our cataract doctor sees patients from Boca Raton, Palm Beach, Miami, Plantation, and the surrounding areas.
A Cataract Doctor of Choice for More Than 20 Years
For more than 20 years, Dr. Shatz has been the cataract doctor of choice, having completed more than 25,000 cataract surgeries on patients from Boca Raton, Palm Beach, Miami, Plantation, and the surrounding areas. He is a premiere cataract doctor, who uses the newest techniques, including topical clear-corneal surgery, which is commonly referred to as the “no needles, no stitches” technique. Our cataract doctor performs this outpatient procedure, which takes approximately 10 minutes per eye. Patients who need cataract surgery on both eyes can usually have the procedure done on the same day, by our cataract doctor, unless he sees a reason to have them done separately.
Cataract Procedure Explained by the Cataract Doctor
Our cataract doctor will explain the procedure in detail, stating that the worn out natural lens of the eye can change shape when trying to see something close. The eye lens will begin to yellow, which causes eyesight to become less clear. The eye lens will be replaced with a clear intraocular lens implant. Once the cataract doctor inserts eye drops for anesthesia, he will complete this 10-minute procedure. After the procedure is complete, you will rest for a short time, in the office and then go to your home in Plantation, Fort Lauderdale, Parkland, Boca Raton, Palm Beach, Miami, and the nearby areas. You can resume your normal schedule the following day. Throughout his 20 years as a cataract doctor, Dr. Shatz has developed surgical instruments used by cataract surgeons and sits on several clinical advisory panels. He is a very well-known and respected cataract doctor, who is often asked to assist on difficult cases and teaches his surgical techniques to other ophthalmologists.
