Cataract Surgery

If you have been diagnosed with cataracts, surgery may or may not be the best option for you. Our JEA surgeons are ready to discuss your diagnosis during your scheduled cataract consultation. Your physician will perform a full eye examination and discuss the best options for treatment. If your vision can be improved with cataract surgery, your physician may recommend this direction for treatment. The choice to have surgery is always yours. 

 

Prior to Surgery

If you elect to proceed with cataract surgery, you will be fitted for your  IOL, or Intraocular Lens, prior to your surgery. Recent advances in technology have given us new options for lenses, including those to correct distance vision and those that correct intermediate and distance vision simultaneously. Your doctor will help you determine which lenses are best for you.

 

During Surgery

The entire cataract surgery usually takes less than 30 minutes. Your doctor will most likely perform a procedure known as phacoemulsification, the least invasive technique used today. This involves making small incision in the eye, inserting a thin probe to break up and remove the cloudy lens, and implanting a new lens.

If you think you may be a candidate for cataract surgery, please contact our office for a consultation.
