One of the most frequently performed surgeries is traditional cataract surgery. It is a safe and effective eye surgery with a predictably positive outcome. Typically, no stiches are required and recovery time is quite fast.
To improve eyes affected with cataracts, we remove the lens inside your eye that has become cloudy and replace it with an artificial lens. By replacing the cloudy natural lens, your clear vision can be restored. We offer the latest procedures available to help remove cataracts and restore your vision, including the placement of intraocular lenses.
Laser Assisted Cataracts Surgery, also referred to as Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery, uses the femtosecond laser to do many of the steps currently performed by hand. It is designed to provide a greater level of precision and safety to modern cataract surgery. Canyon Eye Associates is proud to be one of the first practices in central Ohio to make this technology available our patients. Watch the instructional video to understand the differences of laser assisted cataract surgery vs traditional cataract surgery.
Cataract surgery is a safe and effective procedure that is performed on an outpatient basis. Patients have minimal down time and are often seeing better by the next day. With improvements in safety and results, it is no longer necessary to wait until the cataracts have reached the point of severe visual decline before obtaining the benefits of this life enhancing procedure.
