The Safe Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is one of the safest, and most commonly performed surgical procedures. It's also one of the most successful. In the vast majority of cases, patients do well and achieve excellent vision. A cataract is the clouding of the natural lens in your eye. This lens functions to focus light. When this lens becomes cloudy, it causes many symptoms such as blurred vision, glare, the need for increased lighting to read, and starbursting when driving at night. Fortunately, cataracts can be quickly, safely and permanently removed with cataract surgery.

Refractive Lens Exchange

What is a Refractive Lens Exchange?

We are born with a flexible lens inside the eye that is able to focus light on the retina and give us vision. As we grow, the eye and the lens change thus forcing most people to wear glasses for best vision. As we get older, the lens loses flexibility, and we lose the ability to focus on near objects and require the use of reading or bifocal glasses. Many people find the process very frustrating and may elect for removal of the natural lens and replacing it with a plastic Multifocal Lens. The surgery is equivalent to performing cataract surgery without waiting for the cataract to form and is therefore considered Cosmetic from the insurance standpoint.

What is the goal of the Surgery?

The goal of refractive lens exchange is to restore distance and near vision with greatly reduced dependence on glasses. It cannot fix problems and restore vision lost due to glaucoma, macular degeneration, or irregular astigmatism.
