A cataract is a progressive clouding of the eye's natural lens. It is a gradual blurring of vision, usually described as looking through a piece of wax paper. This diminished vision affects quality of life. During cataract surgery, your eye's natural lens is removed and replaced with an IOL. Cataract surgery is among the safest of all surgeries, with highly accurate, precise outcomes. This no stitch, no patch eye care procedure is performed under topical anesthesia, and physical activity is minimally restricted postoperatively.

What's new in eye care cataract surgery?
Recent FDA approvals of newer versions of multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) for cataract surgery mean even more options are available for people who want to reduce or possibly eliminate their dependence on eyeglasses and help you to see at distance, intermediate, and close-up vision ranges.

Toric Lens Implants
Are a type of lens implant that can correct astigmatism. Astigmatism is an optical irregularity that is caused by the cornea being shaped more like a football, than spherical like a baseball. For cataract patients who have astigmatism, and who do not wish to wear eyeglasses to see clearly at a distance, choosing a Toric Lens Implant can help them be free of glasses for tasks such as driving, that require clear distance vision.
