Cataract surgery is the most frequently performed surgery in
the U.S. And it’s the most successful. More than 95 percent of surgeries have
no complications, and all result in improved vision.
At WFBH Eye Center, we use the latest ultrasonic surgical
equipment to delicately remove the cloudy lens. It requires only the tiniest
incision. Then we insert one of three types of artificial, or intraocular,
- Monofocal lens — A standard lens that improves distance
vision. Patients may still need glasses to read or see closely.
- Toric lens — For patients with astigmatism. Sharpens
distance vision, but patients may still need reading glasses.
- Multifocal lens — Like having a bifocal lens inside the
eye: Part of the eye is for near vision, part is for distance vision.
Our cataract surgery specialists help patients choose the best IOL
The whole procedure takes about 15 minutes. Patients
typically have little to no pain. They go home soon after surgery and can
return to normal activities the next day.
