Our surgeons here at Lusk Eye Specialists have been specializing in cataract removal and lens implantation for decades. Thanks to recent advances in laser technology, lens implants and 3D diagnostics and imaging, there has never been a better time to have cataract surgery than right now. We now have the ability to give cataract patients a better quality of vision – and a broader range of vision – than ever before, which makes it a very exciting time for both patients and for cataract surgeons alike.
When it comes to cataract care at Lusk Eye Specialists, our goal is to help you make a more informed decision on which cataract options are best suited for your needs. Your lifestyle and hobbies will play an important role in helping us customize a cataract surgery plan that is tailor made to fit your needs.
Most patients don’t realize that cataracts can begin forming as early as age 40. By the time we’re 50, some of us already have measurable deficiencies in our vision due to cataracts.
Cataracts are simply a natural part of the aging process that is taking place inside your eye. It’s a gradual clouding of the normally clear natural lens of the eye. Although barely noticeable in its early stages, over time, this clouding process makes your vision less sharp, reducing your contrast and making activities like night driving and reading more difficult.
Fortunately, modern-day cataract removal and lens implantation is one of the safest, most common – AND MOST SUCCESSFUL – surgical procedures performed today.
Most patients having cataract surgery have measurable levels of astigmatism. Lusk Eye Specialists now offer several Astigmatism Management procedures that can be performed during your procedure, including the Toric Lens Implant, Limbal Relaxing Incisions and Arcuate Incisions performed with a Femtosecond lsaer. These lenses and surgical techniques are designed to reduce or eliminate prescription glasses for distance vision activities like driving, playing golf, watching television or simply enjoying the outdoors.
BREAKTHROUGHS IN CATARACT LENS IMPLANTS:
For patients without astigmatism who are experiencing difficulty driving at night or want to see better in the distance without glasses, we offer a High Definition Vision package. This includes additional testing and measurements and a special monofocal aspheric lens implant that is specially designed to improve your contrast and distance vision.
Our multi-focal lens implants give you the opportunity to experience the very latest advances in cataract care and technology. They are designed to a broader, less restricted range of vision for NEAR, INTERMEDIATE and DISTANCE. During the first 12 months following your procedure, we will do everything in our ability to help you achieve VISUAL FREEDOM from all prescription eyewear, including LASIK laser vision correction if necessary.
Your cataract procedure will most likely be performed in the comfort, safety and convenience of our outpatient surgery center dedicated entirely to eye surgery. By having your cataract procedure performed in our dedicated ASC, you’re not only enjoying personal savings when compared to hospital-based cataract surgery, but you’re also helping reduce costs for Medicare and the insurance industry.
If you’re experiencing changes in your vision – or have been diagnosed with a cataract – please call our office today to schedule your cataract evaluation. You do not need a referral from your optometrist or another doctor.
