SightTrust Eye Institute is one of the foremost laser cataract surgery centers in the entire country, because we are led by our ophthalmologist, Dr. Andrew Shatz. He was one of the first ophthalmologists to perform laser-assisted cataract surgery, and he is very highly regarded within his field by his peers.
Improve Your Vision and Enhance Your Life
Many people are not aware of the root cause of the farsightedness that is often experienced by people that are entering their 40s or 50s. In ophthalmology terminology, this condition is called presbyopia. It becomes difficult to see things up close because the natural lenses of the eyes become cloudy due to cataracts. These lenses are responsible for most of the focusing power that can be generated, so they serve a very important anatomical purpose.
The laser cataract surgery that our Miami ophthalmologist performs involves the removal of the clouded, natural lenses. Fresh, crystal clear prescription lenses are subsequently implanted. This laser assisted cataract surgery is absolutely painless, and it can be performed in a matter of minutes. If you were to undergo this procedure, you would be able to leave the facility about 30 minutes after it is completed.
You can resume normal activities immediately, and the marked improvement in your vision will be recognized within a couple of days if not sooner. For many patients, the laser cataract surgery can be performed on both eyes at the same time, so no repeat visits are necessary.
