Cataract surgery is the removal of the cataract with an implantation of a new artificial lens, also known as an intraocular lens (IOL). This lens has a prescription to it, like a contact lens, but sits within the eye. The goal of cataract surgery is to give patients sharper vision, less glare, and better clarity of vision.
Before determining a treatment plan, our specialists will perform a comprehensive eye exam that includes diagnostic tests. During the visit, measurements of your eye will be taken, your pupils will be dilated, and you will meet the doctor and staff to discuss the stage of your cataracts and various options for cataract surgery.
