Cataract Surgery

As many people age, cataracts, or clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye, are an increasingly common problem.

Cataract Symptoms

  • Blurred vision
  • Light sensitivity
  • Double vision in one eye
  • Poor night vision
  • Color distortion
  • Glare

Skyline Vision Clinic & Laser Center offers modern, state-of-the-art cataract care to help patients regain the freedom of clear vision.

Steps In Cataract Surgery

  1. Using only a topical anesthetic to numb the eye, the surgeon creates a small incision and uses high-energy sound waves to break the cataract into microscopic particles, which are then removed from the eye.
  2. To compensate for the removal of the eye’s natural lens, an Intraocular Lens (IOL) is implanted into the eye. We will help you determine if a Monofocal, Accommodating, Multifocal or an astigmatism-correcting IOL is right for you, depending on your vision goals after surgery.

 

The cataract removal technique Skyline Vision Clinic & Laser Center uses is often preferred to traditional methods because patients are very comfortable during and after the procedure. Because this new technique uses eye drops to numb the eye, the need for an anesthetic shot, stitches or a post-surgery patch is eliminated. The eye remains tightly sealed by the natural outward pressure within your eye. Another advantage is that most patients notice a rapid visual improvement with this technique.
