Today's Cataract Surgery
Our Cataract Team
Cataract surgery is considered the safest and most effective procedure performed in the US today. Restoring optimum vision with this life-changing procedure has been a primary focus of Florida Eye Institute for over 30 years. An average of 1,200 cases are performed each year in our licensed and accredited surgery center.
Every patient is unique. Our board certified surgeons are specially trained to manage complex co-conditions along with cataract surgery. Whether you have a history of LASIK, RK or corneal surgery, or are being treated for glaucoma or retina condition.
Technological advances have created a variety of (IOL) lens and laser applications, each with unique benefits and features. Patients can now correct loss of reading vision (presbyopia) and astigmatism at the time of surgery. This can significantly reduce – or even eliminate – the need for glasses after surgery!
Patients are extremely satisfied with surgery results. According to a recent AARP study, three-quarters of cataract patients reported enjoying life more and wished they had the procedure sooner. Additionally, 85% felt well educated about the surgery, and 75% said they properly understood lens and vision options.
