Advancements in Cataract Surgery
Did you know that cataract surgery is right up there with LASIK when it comes to giving you freedom from glasses? The quality of the lenses today have far surpassed those that were available to your parents when they had cataract surgery. With the availability of multifocal lenses like the ReSTOR and ReZoom lenses, some patients are free from glasses and contact lenses for the first time in their lives following their cataract surgery! These multifocal lenses replace the natural cloudy lenses that are removed from our patients’ eyes during cataract surgery, only these sophisticated lenses also correct our patients’ nearsightedness, farsightedness, and “old age” eyes. Many of the patients who opt for the ReSTOR or ReZoom lenses don’t even need reading glasses after surgery! The lenses are designed to bring near vision, distance vision, and everything in between into focus.
To find out if you may be a good candidate for a multifocal lens, please contact our practice at 301-215-7100. We look forward to seeing you at your next visit!
