New Technology treatment for cataracts improves vision loss

The overall success of your cataract surgery is most influenced by the experience and skill of the surgeon performing the operation. The team at Vista Eye Specialists also believes that the right cataract technology can make the procedure safer, more precise and more comfortable, with exceptional visual outcomes.

We have committed to retiring earlier technology in favor of sophisticated systems so we can provide you with the most advanced and reliable solutions to cataracts. Not only can this technology provide extraordinary quality of vision, it can also minimize the potential for side effects.

Pre-Operative Measurements and Testing

In our team’s experience, better information leads to better patient outcomes. Capturing precise measurements of your eye prior to treatment can help us plan out your surgery and select the most appropriate IOL with which to replace your eye’s natural lens.

Our team utilizes the Carl Zeiss Meditec IOL Master, Pentacam Corneal Analyzer as well as the Lenstar LS 900 biometer to gather critical information about your eye, so we can help you achieve the best vision possible.

Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery

Another exciting area of cataract surgery technology is the use of a femtosecond laser to perform key elements of the procedure (including the creation of the surgical incision and the softening and fragmenting of the cloudy lens). Laser-assisted cataract surgery is more predictable and precise than traditional cataract surgery; it also eliminates some of the risk of human error for greater peace of mind during surgery.

Advanced IOLs

The latest intraocular lenses (IOLs) restore clear, sharp vision at multiple distances with very little need for corrective eyewear and fewer occurrences of side effects like glare, halos and night vision problems after surgery.

We offer a few different types of lenses. Accommodating lenses work with the muscles of your eye to change their shape and power to focus on objects at different distances. Toric IOLs are designed to reduce or eliminate astigmatism while correcting for cataracts. And we have seen incredible results with the newest type of IOLs, known as extended depth of focus IOLs, which provide a seamless range of vivid, continuous vision.

Our team will work with you to select the most appropriate lens based on your visual needs, lifestyle and personal preferences.
