Astigmatism is when the surface of the eye - the cornea - has a more oval than round shape. With uncorrected astigmatism, your vision may still be blurry after standard cataract surgery.
Between limbal relaxing incisions and toric lenses, your surgeon can eliminate most and sometimes all of your astigmatism at the time of cataract surgery.
Eliminating astigmatism improves your vision without glasses at all distances.
Presbyopia is the eye's inability to focus up close, typically requiring the use of reading glasses or bifocals.
Most adults above the age of 40 have some level of presbyopia.
For patients interested in becoming less dependent on glasses, your cataract surgeon can implant a presbyopia-correcting lens inside your eye at the time of cataract surgery that will allow you to see well at far, intermediate, and even some near distances.
These same lenses correct both presbyopia AND astigmatism, and most people who choose this type of lens enjoy substantially less dependence on glasses.
We are proud to offer both multifocal and extended-depth-of-focus (EDOF) implants. Your surgeon will discuss the pros and cons of each at time of your cataract evaluation.
The Zepto (R) Precision-Pulse Capsulotomy system is one of the most recent advances in cataract surgery.
A capsulotomy is one of the first steps in cataract surgery. It allows your surgeon access to the cataract to remove it from your eye.
A well-done capsulotomy helps keep your new lens centered, providing you with the best vision possible.
The Zepto (R) Precision-Pulse Capsulotomy system creates a capsulotomy that is 2-4x stronger than a capsulotomy done using a femtosecond laser and is only a fraction of the cost.
Using a special lens material designed by a Nobel Prize winning scientist, RxSight has developed the first intraocular lens (IOL) that allows you and your physician to optimize your vision following cataract surgery.
Despite numerous advances in modern cataract surgery technologies, only 6 out of 10 cataract patients achieve their targeted vision, and an even smaller percentage achieve excellent vision at all distances.¹ This is because it is very difficult to predict how your eye will heal before your cataract surgery.
With the Light Adjustable Lens, you can now customize your vision after your cataract surgery. You will have the unique ability to adjust and preview your vision based on your personal desires and lifestyle requirements. This optimization is done by your eye doctor after lens implantation through a series of office-based light treatment procedures that take only a few minutes each.
The Light Adjustable Lens delivers superior visual outcomes that non-adjustable IOLs cannot match.² In a study of 600 subjects, those who received the Light Adjustable Lens followed by adjustments were twice as likely to achieve 20/20 distance vision at 6 months without glasses as those who received a standard monofocal IOL.
