Once you’ve visited the eye doctor and have been told you have cataracts, you need to find a cataract surgeon who has the knowledge and experience to take care of you. Dr. Andrew Shatz performs all cataract procedures using the femtosecond laser. This allows him to perform same-day surgery on patients from Miami, Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, and the surrounding areas, who would benefit from this procedure. When choosing a cataract surgeon, it’s important to know how many surgeries the doctor has performed successfully. Our cataract doctor has treated more than 25,000 cataract patients. He has advanced training in topical, laser-assisted cataract surgery, along with refractive lens exchange surgery, clear-corneal cataract surgery, which is often called no-stitch surgery, and phakic intraocular lens implant surgery.
Options from Your Cataract Surgeon
When you are having trouble driving at night, see halos around lights, and are experiencing blurred vision, it is important to visit with your eyecare professional. It is often found that cataracts are to blame and only a cataract surgeon will be able to help you regain clear sight. Our cataract surgeon will examine you and offer his advice on steps to take. Patients from Miami, Palm Beach, Plantation, Weston, and the surrounding areas, will learn cataract surgery is performed on one eye at a time. In some cases, the cataract surgeon can perform cataract surgery on both eyes, during the same procedure.
Discuss Treatments with Our Cataract Surgeon
Our cataract surgeon conducts all procedures at our SightTrust Eye Institute. Visit our intraocular lens surgery center and meet with our cataract surgeon to discuss your vision issues and ask questions. Our goal is to help you understand the vision issues affecting you and explain, in detail, how we can help you, by removing the cataracts. Our nurses and cataract surgeon will go over the steps of cataract surgery and your recovery. They will explain that cataract surgery is done to replace the worn-out lens in your eye, which causes glare and blurred vision. This worn-out lens is removed and replaced with a clear intraocular lens implant (IOL). You will be happy to know that recovery for cataract surgery is very minimal, and usually is performed within 10 minutes, per eye. This surgery does not require anesthesia, only eye drops as the anesthetic and by the next day you can resume normal activities.
