close up of eye before cataract surgery

Cataract surgery becomes a necessity for a majority of adults with statistics showing by age 65, over 90 percent of people have a cataract and half of the people between the ages of 75 and 85 have lost some vision due to a cataract. Cataract surgery is the process of replacing the cloudy, inflexible lens with an artificial lens.

At Florida Medical Clinic Eye Specialists – we have 3 options for treating cataracts.

Option 1: Standard Surgery

This option includes cataract surgery with a high-quality, standard implant that will improve your distance vision. Every patient needs reading glasses with the standard implant, and most patients need bifocal glasses for optimal distance and near vision.

Option 2: Astigmatism Correction

This option uses a combination of the LenSx® laser and/or a toric IOL to reduce or eliminate your astigmatism and maximize your distance vision.

Option 3: Premium Surgery

This option utilizes the LenSx® laser to assist in the performance of a state-of the art cataract surgery and the ACTIVEFOCUS ReSTOR® multifocal IOL to improve vision for both distance and intermediate/ near vision.

If you are a cataract patient, consult with your surgeon and determine which option is best suited for your needs. Premium surgery uses the technology of the LenSx Laser. The state of the art LenSx Laser, excels on 3 levels:

  • Corneal plane
  • Capsular plane
  • Lenticular plane
Wide bean is designed for corneal accuracy
Mid beam puts the focus on the capsule
