The Doctors Doctor
Now I am free of glasses for the first time in 30 years. I wish I could have done it decades ago, but the risk level was not acceptable until recent advances.
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: What can I expect of surgery?
Answer: Before cataract surgery, your eye surgeon will consult with you on your medical history, including any medications you are taking. On the day of surgery, eye drops will be given to dilate your pupils. Some patients also receive a sedative to relax them during the procedure. Cataract surgery is painless, as a local or topical anesthetic is administered.
Once your eye has been prepped, a small incision is made and your surgeon will remove the cloudy lens and replace it with an intraocular lens, or IOL. The cataract may also be "broken up" with a laser. The exact method of surgical extraction will be discussed with you prior to your procedure.
Your surgeon will replace your natural lens with a regular single-vision (mono-focal) intraocular lens, or you may choose to receive a presbyopia-correcting intraocular lens. The most suitable lens is determined through the consideration of your lifestyle as well as your budget. While presbyopia correcting IOLs reduce or eliminate your need for eyeglasses, they do carry a higher cost.
