What are multifocal and accommodating lenses
An intraocular lens (IOL) implant is then inserted into the eye to compensate for the removal of the eye’s natural lens.If bilateral surgery is being performed, the eyes are typically scheduled one week apart.After the topical anesthetic eye drops have been administered, Dr.Collins makes a very tiny incision in the eye, that is so small it’s “self-sealing.” He then performs a technique called phacoemulsification. Collins uses ultrasound energy to break up the cataract-diseased eye lens into microscopic particles, which he gently suctions from the eye.
This cloudiness blocks and distorts light passing through the eye and thus impedes clear vision.
The actual cataract procedure only takes about 15 minutes to perform.
Nonetheless, patients can expect to spend about three to four hours at the surgery center, to allow for preoperative preparation and postoperative observation.
Over time, the cataract will grow larger and cloud more of the lens.
If you suffer from any of the symptoms above, schedule an appointment with Dr.
ORA measurements are used to assist the procedure and help ensure patients get the best possible outcomes.
