What is Cataract Surgery?

Eye with a dense cataractCataract surgery is a surgical procedure with an overall excellent success rate. The clouded natural lens is replaced with an artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL). It is done on an outpatient basis with topical anesthesia that makes it a painless procedure. One eye is done at a time, with a short healing period in between. After making a very small incision outside your field of vision, your eye surgeon will insert a tiny probe and use ultrasound to break up the clouded natural lens. With suction, the pieces are easily removed, and through the same incision, the IOL is inserted and positioned correctly.  This is a crucial point of understanding for patients. Patients can either have a monofocal Medicare lens which will only correct vision for one distance or they can opt for a an upgrade Advanced Technology Premium lens implant that can reduce or eliminate their need for glasses after cataract surgery. Please discuss with Dr. Gaster which Intraocular Lens is best suited for your visual needs.

Understanding Intraocular Lenses

The intraocular lens is a foldable lens that slides through a tube into the eye and unfolds in the capsular bag. Once the lens is centered, the surgery is complete. Having a discussion with your cataract surgeon on the choice about the best intraocular lens implant for you is suggested. If you have questions regarding lens implants, please feel free to discuss this with Dr. Gaster at your examination.
