Laser Cataract Surgery
The procedure that is at the core of our practice is laser cataract surgery. There are natural lenses in the human eye behind the irises (the colored portion), and they are responsible for 33 percent of the eye’s focusing power. Over the years, cataracts can develop on these lenses. They cloud the lenses, and this makes it difficult to see, especially at night. People who need reading glasses when they get older are suffering from this condition, which is formally called presbyopia.
A cataract physician like our surgeon, Dr. Shatz, can remove the old, compromised lens and implant a new one that will be crystal-clear forever. This is a life-changing procedure, and it is gratifying to be able to give the gift of perfect vision to so many people. However, when you think about this equation, a question may come to mind. What happens if you have been nearsighted throughout your life, and your ability to see things that are close to you starts degrading as well as you approach middle age?
This is a very good question, and a multifocal lens can be the ideal answer. It is possible for our cataract surgeon to implant a lens that can allow patients to see perfectly at all different distances. The specific product that is implanted is the ReSTOR multifocal intraocular lens.
People often have concerns about this procedure, but you can put them aside. You will experience absolutely no pain or discomfort, and the procedure can be completed in 15 minutes or so in many cases. Plus, there is no convalescent period, so you can go back to life as normal as soon as you leave the office.
