Cataracts Q&A

What Are Cataracts?

Cataracts are a clouding of the eye lens. Cataracts negatively impact vision, and they are quite common. In fact, most people who are 55 or older have cataracts or have undergone surgery for cataracts in the past. Cataracts can happen in just one eye or in both eyes, but they don’t spread from one eye to the other eye.

What is Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery?

This type of surgery is a laser solution for cataracts. The laser technology used in this surgery, femtosecond technology, offers the highest levels of safety and accuracy to the procedure. The femtosecond laser can either replace hand-held surgical tools or help guide the use of these tools. The femtosecond laser is used in the corneal incision, in the anterior capsulotomy, and for fragmentation of the cataract.

What Are Multifocal Lenses?

Multifocal lenses provide a range of vision after cataract surgery. They help reduce your dependency on glasses or contact lenses.

What Are Accommodating Lenses?

Accommodating lenses help the eyes adjust their focusing to allow for better vision at every distance. These lenses are often used after cataract surgery because they can help the eyes adjust to their new cataract-free state while providing improved vision.
