You need to have cataract surgery and you will only consider a doctor who uses cutting edge technology and knows all the latest procedures. Cataract patients in Miami, Boca Raton, Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and the surrounding areas call on Dr. Andrew Shatz. He is a board-certified ophthalmologist with two decades of experience performing laser cataract surgery. As the lead cataract surgeon in his high-tech surgery center in Sunrise, FL, Dr. Shatz has performed more than 25,000 intraocular lens procedures. SightTrust Eye Institute was one of the very first surgery centers in the U.S to perform laser-assisted cataract surgery for all patients.
Benefits of Laser Cataract Surgery
Dr. Shatz uses the very precise femtosecond laser technology, which is a completely bladeless procedure. This laser cataract surgery takes five to twenty minutes and is a painless procedure.
The doctor uses the LenSx cataract laser because it creates very precise incisions and replaces the need for ultrasound energy, which can cause swelling and temporary blurred vision. As we enter our 40’s or older, cataract surgery may be inevitable, but it doesn’t have to cause you concern. Laser cataract surgery is very technologically advanced, and you can walk out of the procedure shortly after it is over and resume life in your homes in Fort Lauderdale, Parkland, Palm Beach and Boca Raton. No overnight hospital stay is required and there is no long-term recovery period.
Laser Cataract Surgery Revolution
A cataract causes clouding of the natural lens creating dull or dim vision. It can also cause halo effects and glare, making it difficult driving at night, reading or playing certain sports. Untreated cataracts can worsen, making it more difficult to participate in certain activities. Laser cataract surgery is the most common surgical procedure today and more than 3 million people undergo this procedure each year. Laser cataract surgery provides patients with the most advanced procedures, producing vision you had when you were younger. Only having to use eye drops for a few weeks after the laser cataract surgery, our patients enjoy a full active lifestyle again. Dr. Shatz says, “90% of our patients report to our staff that they can drive or read without glasses and contacts.” According to Dr. Shatz, laser cataract surgery has revolutionized the delivery of accurate, precise and safe results. Laser cataract surgery will have you seeing young again. For more information on the laser cataract surgery visit www.sighttrust.com or call (877) 878-7890.
