Laser Cataract Surgery

Now, there is a cataract procedure as unique as your eye itself.

Eyecare Professionals offers LenSx® laser cataract surgery. While all human eyes share the same basic anatomical structure, every eye is just a bit different in terms of size, depth, curvature of the cornea and other key features. Which is why every eye must be carefully measured and mapped prior to cataract surgery. While these measurements have been routinely performed prior to surgery, the LenSx® Laser uses a range of highly advanced technologies to capture incredibly precise, high-resolution images of your eye which are then used to plan and perform a surgery to exacting specifications.

Eyecare Professionals use this advance, precision based technology to customize the procedure for your eye. It is a technologically advanced option we offer our cataract patients.

No matter what aspects of life you value most – working, golfing, reading or just taking in the scenery while strolling around town – chances are they’re highly or wholly-dependent on your sight. So if your vision is clouded by cataracts, contact us and start enjoying the very things, places and people that make life worth living.

» Laser Cataract Surgery Frequently Asked Questions

For years, I suffered from blurred vision caused by a cataract, but never felt as though eye surgery was for me. After examining my eyes, Dr. Jeffreys convinced me that I was an ideal candidate for the procedure. It was quick and painless – as I was able to return home within an hour. The results have been truly life-changing. My only regret is not having the procedure done sooner.

Advanced Technology Implants (IOLs)

Multifocal Lenses: In cataract surgery, an intraocular lens (IOL) is the replacement lens that is surgically implanted in the eye to replace the existing cloudy lens. Traditionally, the replacement lens used for cataract surgery is a monofocal IOL. This type of lens restores good functional distance vision, but patients may still need to continue wearing reading glasses.

Intraocular lens technology has taken great leaps of progress, thus giving you more options. Today, you have the option of receiving a multifocal lens, which can improve distance, intermediate, and near vision – and in most cases eliminate the need for glasses.

These innovative implants are uniquely effective, especially when placed in both eyes. Most patients find they can read a book, work on the computer, drive a car – day or night – and play golf or tennis with an increased freedom from glasses.

Are you a candidate for a multifocal lens? At Eyecare Professionals, we take into account the many aspects of your eye health, but also consider your lifestyle choices (reading, hobbies, night driving, etc.) to determine if they are right for you.

Toric Lenses: Sometimes, the surface of the cornea is curved more like a football (instead of a basketball) with flatter and steeper curves. When the surface of the cornea has an uneven curvature, vision becomes distorted. This common irregularity, called corneal astigmatism, causes blurred or distorted vision because light rays are not focused at one spot on the retina to provide clear vision. A patient who has both a cataract and a corneal astigmatism will not regain high-quality distance vision after surgery to remove the cataract unless the astigmatism is also corrected.

For these patients, Eyecare Professionals offers Toric lens implants. Their unique design makes it possible to reduce or eliminate corneal astigmatism and significantly improve uncorrected distance vision.

When I agreed to cataract surgery, I told Dr. Jeffreys I was tired of wearing glasses. He recommended multifocal lens implants, which have improved my vision at all distances – and best of all eliminated my need for glasses. I can now read a book, watch TV, and even drive a car – day or night – without glasses!
