Cataract Surgery In Rochester, NY
Also Serving Brighton, Gates, Irondequoit & Victor
During cataract surgery, a small ultrasonic probe is inserted into the eye that breaks up, or emulsifies, the cloudy lens into tiny pieces and gently sucks, or aspirates, those pieces out of the eye. Phaco surgery requires a small incision of only 2.8 mm or less. A combination of local anesthesia and IV sedation is used to make the procedure painless.
Patients can expect the best results from our state-of-the-art cataract treatments. We perform topical anesthesia cataract surgeries so the patient doesn't have to stop aspirin, Coumadin, or other blood thinners and go home without an eye patch. We also offer the latest laser assisted cataract surgeries utilizing the femtosecond laser.
With the recent advancement of foldable IOLs, artificial lenses can be implanted through the same small incision that is created in the phaco procedure. These IOLs are made of a flexible material, allowing them to be folded for implantation. Once inside the eye, the lens unfolds and returns to its original shape. We offer the Advanced Technology Lenses including toric implants for astigmatism correction and multifocal (MF) or extended depth of focus lended (EDOF) for those who want to minimize the need for reading glasses after cataract surgeries.
Our cataract experts are always happy to answer any questions you may have.
