Understanding Cataracts

Many patients do not realize it, but cataract surgery is a form of refractive surgery. During cataract surgery, Dr. Slade or Dr. Walton will replace your natural lens with a new lens that corrects your vision and eliminates your need for glasses.  There are now new, high technology lenses that can help reduce or eliminate your need for reading glasses after cataract surgery.

Our surgeons are specialists in LASIK eye surgery, and in Laser Cataract surgery.  Laser Cataract Surgery may be the best refractive surgery for some patients. In this surgery the human lens is replaced by a soft plastic implant, which refocuses the eye. The procedure is performed in our in-office surgical suite and only takes 15 or 20 minutes. Success rates are very high. In addition to using the femtosecond laser to do many of the steps currently performed by hand, we use many of the best innovations in cataract surgery, such as drops only anesthesia (no shots), suture-less incisions through the clear cornea, and foldable intraocular lenses. These advances enable us to use the smallest possible incision, about 1/18th of an inch. In addition, we have the nation’s longest experience with the Crystalens accommodating IOL, which is the key to reducing dependence on glasses after cataract surgery.
