Cataracts cannot be treated with medications, but a cataract only needs to be removed when the impaired vision interferes with daily activities, such as driving, reading, or watching television. In this case, your eye doctor may recommend cataract surgery. During surgery, the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with a clear, artificial intraocular lens (IOL). Cataract surgery is an out-patient surgery and most of the time can be performed in under 30 minutes.
New advancements in technology now allow patients to have more options in achieving the vision they desire after cataract surgery with reduced dependence on glasses.
Dr. Kalyani has many years of experience performing both traditional cataract surgery as well as state-of-the-art bladeless, femtosecond laser cataract surgery using the LenSx laser platform. With the use of the LenSx laser, Dr. Kalyani is able to perform a customized treatment unique to each patient’s eye with measurements that are taken in the office prior to surgery. The laser also allows Dr. Kalyani to gently break up the cataract so there is less ultrasound energy needed during the surgery.
Patients also have the option of choosing an IOL that best suit their needs. Premium IOLs which Dr. Kalyani offers are a multifocal IOL, which improves both near and distance vision, thus reducing the need for glasses and a toric IOL which helps reduce astigmatism, again reducing your dependence on glasses. When Dr. Kalyani is evaluating you for cataract surgery, he will discuss with you all of the options as well as his recommendations based on your needs.
