25 Questions 

What is new in cataract surgery detection and care?

For 15 years now cataract surgery has been performed with no shots, no patch, and no pain.

The two newest advancements are the size of the incision and the type of implant.

The incisions now are virtually microscopic. One area doctor is making a 1.8-millimeter incision. Smaller incisions mean quicker healing time and less chance for infection.

We always put an implant in when we remove a cloudy human lens. Before, the standard implant was very good for distance vision but you needed reading glasses. Now we use a “progressive” implant, a multifocal interocular lens. For many of our patients this lens will provide not only clearer vision but will minimize the need to wear glasses at all.
