If it is determined that you do indeed have cataracts, our eye doctor will be able to provide you with information about our cataract surgery. Cataract surgery is an operation that is very common today, and it is considered to be one of the safest eye surgeries currently performed. We provide cataract surgery using a laser. The patient is given local anesthesia for total comfort.
Our 07109 ophthalmology doctor is able to perform the cataract surgery in less than thirty minutes. During the cataract surgery a tiny incision is made in your eye using the laser. Through this incision the damaged lens is removed, and a clear manmade lens is inserted. This lens will not become damaged, so it will never need to be replaced. Generally the lens that is inserted will provide you with excellent distance vision. There are progressive lenses that provide excellent near vision as well. However, many insurance companies do not cover these advanced lenses. Recovery from cataract surgery generally takes a short amount of time, with many people being able to see clearly even the next day. However, everyone does have their own healing schedule. This operation is done on an outpatient basis. You will leave with a protective covering over your eye so that it is not inadvertently bumped or scratched while you sleep.
