If you are looking for a cataract doctor in the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area, you are very fortunate. Top-notch cataract surgeons are hard to find in some portions of the country, but people in Palm Beach, Parkland, Weston, and Boca Raton have a cataract doctor that is world-renowned right in their backyards.
The cataract surgeon here at SightTrust Eye Institute is Dr. Andrew Shatz. He is a board-certified ophthalmologist, and in fact, the Consumers’ Research Council of America named him one of the leading ophthalmologists in the United States. He is widely recognized as the leading implant surgeon for the ReSTOR multifocal and Artisan phakic intraocular lenses in this region of the country.
Many people start to suffer from farsightedness (presbyopia) when they reach middle age. It can definitely be annoying to have to reach for your reading glasses every time you pick up your cell phone or your favorite newspaper or magazine. Fortunately, our Miami/Ft. Lauderdale cataract doctor can provide you with a permanent solution.
Cataracts cloud the natural lens behind the iris, and this is what causes poor vision. This natural lens provides approximately 30 percent of the eye’s focusing ability, so cloudiness can take a heavy toll. The cataract surgery that we perform here at SightTrust Eye Institute involves removing this compromised, cloudy lens and replacing it with a brand-new, crystal clear lens that will never degrade in any way.
Plus, the prescription will be custom crafted to suit your vision. In fact, there are multifocal intraocular lenses available for people that experience both farsightedness and nearsightedness.
Any time you hear the word “surgery” in any context, you probably envision a lengthy procedure, a good bit of pain, and a long recovery period. One of the great things about cataract surgery is the fact that you don’t have to worry about any of these drawbacks. The procedure is painless, it can be completed in a matter of minutes, and you can go back to your ordinary activities right away. It is also surprisingly affordable, and we offer financing through CareCredit.
