Whether it’s freedom from glasses, or the desire to eliminate your cataract, the great news is there are many options available to renew your vision and regain control of your lifestyle.
Lens Replacement is the most frequently performed surgery in the United States and is one of the safest as well. If you suffer from presbyopia or cataracts, you may be a good candidate for lens replacement.
WHAT ARE MT TREATMENT OPTIONS?
Cataract Surgery (Removal)
Cataract surgery is a routine, virtually painless outpatient procedure that replaces your clouded lens with a clear intraocular lens implant. Cataract removal is performed through a procedure called phacoemulsification. In this procedure, high-energy ultrasound waves are used to gently remove your cataract. In most cases, we use only eye drop anesthesia, allowing our patients the fastest possible recovery. Once the cataract is removed, a permanent, artificial lens is inserted. It is not uncommon for our patients to have the benefit of dramatically improved vision within a few hours of their procedure.
Clear Lens Exchange
For those with presbyopia that are not yet candidates for cataract removal, your surgeon may offer an elective procedure known as clear lens exchange. This procedure uses the same successful techniques as modern cataract surgery by replacing your natural lens with an intraocular lens designed to reduce or eliminate your need for readers, bifocals or even trifocals.
