Our eye surgeons, Dr. Jeff Martin, Dr. Larry Zweibel, Dr Sidney Martin and Dr. John Mauro,will be conducting monthly seminars to afford patients better education in their decision to have cataract surgery. Cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure that is conducted under IV and the use of topical numbing eye drops and therefore do not use needles around the eyes, stitches, or even an eye patch following surgery. Patients then have the opportunity to choose a standard IOL or upgrade to a premium implant that reduces or eliminates the need for glasses at all distances. These implants are called Crystalens, Restor, and Tecnis Multifocal as well as the Toric lenses which treat astigmatism. All are welcome to come and refreshments will be served.
