In addition to Miami and Fort Lauderdale, we also provide laser cataract surgery for Boca Raton, Palm Beach, Parkland, and Plantation residents.
We stand alone as the premier resource for laser cataract surgery in this area because our cataract surgeon, Dr. Andrew Schatz, is one of the foremost experts when it comes to this type of surgery. He has performed more than 15,000 intraocular procedures over the course of his career, and this number grows day by day.
You may have heard about laser cataract surgery without knowing exactly what it is or why it could be beneficial to you, so we will provide an overview here. There are natural lenses in the human eye that are composed of transparent, flexible tissue. The location of these lenses is directly behind the irises and the pupils. They account for most of the focusing power that our eyes can generate.
When many people reach their 40s, they start to develop cataracts that form on these natural lenses that sit behind the irises and the pupils. The cataracts cloud the lenses, and this creates the farsightedness that many people in this age group experience. In medical parlance, this condition of age-related farsightedness is referred to as presbyopia. Many people think it is something that you simply have to live with as one of the eventualities of aging, but this is not the case at all.
Laser cataract surgery can change everything and restore your vision back to its original, youthful acuity if you are suffering from presbyopia. The laser cataract surgery Ft. Lauderdale-Miami area residents can receive from us involves replacing the clouded lens with a prescription lens that is crystal clear. After the surgery is completed, the full effect will be experienced in a couple of days, but some positive improvement is typically noticed within a matter of hours.
The surgery is pain-free, it only takes about 15 minutes to be performed, and you can leave the facility shortly after the doctor has completed the laser cataract procedure.
