Time for a Fresh Start

Imagine seeing spring flowers in a richer color or reading by the pool without foggy vision. It’s time to get your sight back to its younger days and consider cataract surgery.

What is a Cataract?

A cataract is a cloudiness in the eye’s lens, which prevents light from passing through the eye and reaching the retina. Opacity in the eye can be minor, or extremely hindering to your vision. Cataracts are most often seen in adults over 40, but they can occur at any age and cause gradual vision loss.

Exploring Your Options: Laser or Traditional

The future of cataract surgery is here. Laser cataract surgery is designed with your comfort in mind.  Our team of surgeons are pleased to offer the highly advanced VICTUS laser cataract procedure, which is designed to complement the physician’s skills with computer-guided accuracy and offers laser precision. We use the VICTUS laser system to create a blade-free incision in the eye to break up and remove the cataract. In traditional cataract surgery, our surgeons place a small incision in the eye and removes the cataract by a process of phacoemulsification – sound waves to disintegrate the cataract and then vacuums the particles from the eye. Similar to the process of laser surgery – the same time the cataract is removed, the lens of the eye is replaced with a clear lens implant.
