More than 3 million cataract surgeries are performed in the United States every year, and the procedure ranks among the safest medical treatments available for vision correction. Most doctors will recommend you have the surgery if your vision impairment has begun to affect your daily life. For example, when you can’t drive as well at night as you used to, or can no longer enjoy watching a film.

Although being diagnosed with cataracts may be stressful, the experienced doctors at ICON Eyecare have committed their careers to helping people see clearly and making sure they are comfortable with and knowledgeable about their treatment.

During Cataract Surgery

As an outpatient procedure, cataract surgery begins when your eye surgeon numbs the nerves in and around your eye with a local anesthetic, after which they will make a small incision in the front of the eye. The surgeon then removes the cataract-clouded lens and replaces it with a new intraocular lens made of plastic, silicone, or acrylic. The incision is closed in an operation that typically takes less than 20 minutes. The intraocular lens fuses with the eye and becomes a permanent part of the eye’s structure.


Advanced Cataract Technology

At ICON Eyecare, our expert team of surgeons use a LenSx Cataract Laser to provide you with advanced technology for your cataract surgery. This computer-assisted instrument allows us to make precise, customized cuts, instead of using a blade. Once the cataract is removed, Intraoperative Aberrometry is used to improve the precision of your outcome. We are proud to offer this advanced technology to our patients and to offer you the highest-quality, customizable treatment possible.
