New Technology Cataract Care
To compensate for the removal of the eye’s natural lens, a synthetic lens is implanted into the eye. These specially manufactured lenses are about the size of Lincoln’s head on a penny and weigh little more than a single kernel of corn. They are manufactured and polished to the precise curvature needed to properly focus light rays on the retina in the back of your eye. Exciting advances in laser technology and lens designs now give cataract surgeons and patients a number of treatment options that can enhance the quality of vision after cataract surgery. Here are your current options at Wallace Eye Associates.
- Standard Cataract Care – This cataract package includes a standard cataract lens implant and follow-up care. There are no upgrade fees to this package but standard Medicare and insurance deductibles apply. Patients receiving this package will most likely require prescription glasses after surgery.
- Enhanced Cataract Care – Medicare and private insurance providers now allow cataract patients to upgrade their cataract surgery to treat Astigmatism. Our Enhanced Cataract Care includes special testing and Astigmatism correction with either our LENSAR laser, a Toric IOL, Limbal Relaxing Incisions or fine-tuning with LASIK/PRK. There are additional out-of-pocket expenses for this package.
