What Is a Cataract?
Our Focus is Your Vision
 
A cataract is a discoloration or clouding of the normally clear lens in the eye. This change in lens clarity causes light to be scattered producing glare and a reduction of vision that cannot be corrected with glasses. Unfortunately, there are no medical or nutritional methods of treating a cataract and once detected the only way to improve the vision is by removing the cataract surgically.

The advantages of small incision, no stitch, no shield cataract surgery include quick visual recovery, minimal discomfort and no restriction of activities. Eye drop anesthesia eliminates the use of needles.  It also eliminates the need for a patch or shield.
 
 
Over the past several years foldable implants have gained popularity as they can be placed into the eye through a much smaller incision. These implants have flexible optic lenses made of acrylic or solid silicone. They can be placed into the eye through a self sealing incision as small as 1/8th of an inch.
 
Advanced Technology Intraocular Lens Implants
Recent advances in intraocular lens technology have produced Advanced Technology Implants that can give a much broader range of focus than traditional single-focus lens. The Eye MDs offers Symfony, ReSTOR and Tecnis Multifocal IOL's, as well as Crystalens Accommodating IOL. We can help you choose the advance implant that best suites you.
