New trends in cataract surgery

Posted on Jun 13 2010 by Lawrence Zweibel

Cataract surgery which was once performed for patients experiencing significant visual loss is now being performed sooner as indications for this procedure have expanded.  As recently as 30 years ago people still were having cataracts removed without the replacement of intraocular lenses.  This require the use of very strong spectacles that enlarged all images by 20% creating significant distortion in the process.  Modern intraocular lenses changed all that.  With the new advanced multifocal and accommadative lenses now available uncorrected vision is now often better than vision prior to the formation of cataracts.  Therefore people that required glasses or contact lenses prior to cataract surgery are often free from such devices after their sugery.  Those patients with extreme errors can also be fine tuned with lasik surgery.

For this and other reasons patients should be careful in choosing their cataract surgeons. The surgeons at North Shore Eye Care have been performing and teaching cataract surgery for the past 35 years.   Drs. Lawrence Zweibel and Jeff Martin are both Fellows of the American College of Sugeons.  They have been recently joined by Dr. John Mauro.  All surgeons are board certified Ophthalmologists.
