SightTrust Eye Institute is a community resource that offers multifocal lens solutions for people who are suffering from cataracts, and others who have difficulty seeing clearly from various different distances. We serve patients from Miami, Palm Beach, Sunrise, Davie, Weston, and other nearby communities in the metropolitan area. Our surgeon, Dr. Andrew Shatz, has developed a reputation as one of the leading laser cataract surgery specialists in the country, and he has performed roughly 15,000 procedures over the course of his career.
Everyone is well aware of the fact that many people retire to the southeast Florida area, and cataracts are pretty much inevitable for people who reach an advanced age. Cataracts cloud the natural lens of the eye, which causes decreased vision. Laser cataract surgery will involve replacing this old, worn-out lens with a brand-new, crystal clear lens that will never be susceptible to clouding.
There are a lot of possibilities with regard to the exact nature of the replacement lens. Its purpose doesn’t have to be confined to correcting just once distance. A multifocal lens can be implanted to provide visual acuity from all distances.
Many people who have always worn glasses because of nearsightedness develop cataracts when they get older, so they have two different visual deficiencies. The implantation of multifocal lenses can provide a comprehensive solution on both levels, and this is an area of expertise for our cataract surgeon Dr. Shatz. We should point out the fact that multifocal lens exchange surgery can also be useful for some individuals who do not have cataracts.
