Cataract Surgery

     We’re all born with a clear lens that sits behind the iris (the colored portion of the eye). As we age, this lens become cloudy and we call this cloudy lens a cataract. Cataract surgery involves replacing this cloudy lens with a new, clear lens. There are many types of lenses we can put in the eye and they essentially put the prescription inside the eye! There are many types of lenses that we review in our Cataract Packet. Cataract surgery is one of the most common procedures performed in the United States every year. 

     Here is an overview of the process but it’s important to know the specifics of your surgical plan may vary.    


     We take all the measurements we need for any vision correction procedure at your consultation. It’s important to stay out of soft contact lenses for at least five (5) days and three (3) weeks for rigid contact lenses. If you have special contact lenses, let us know when you schedule your consultation.


     We take great care to make sure there is no discomfort at any point of the procedure. Depending on your preference, we may first use a laser to perform some steps of the procedure before moving to a different room where the rest of the procedure is performed. We make two very small openings in the cornea (the clear part at the front of the eye), remove the cloudy natural crystalline lens and insert a new lens in the same capsule where the old lens was. The procedure itself usually takes about 15 minutes and we wait at least 1 week between the two eyes. 


     After the procedure, you will have drops to take and will need to take it easy for a week. This means no lifting, straining, submerging your head in water, or touching/rubbing your eyes. We will see you one day, one week, and one month after surgery.
