About Cataract Surgery

Cataracts are cloudy areas in the normally clear lens of the eye. Over time, they can lead to blurred vision. They are the leading cause of vision loss in the U.S., and an estimated 20.5 million Americans aged 40 years and older have a cataract in one or both eyes. The good news is that they can be cured by means of cataract surgery.

In traditional cataract surgery, the natural lens of the eye is removed and replaced with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) to restore your clear vision. Traditional cataract surgery provides excellent results, but there have been technological advances in both lens technology and surgical techniques that provide you with more options.

To achieve the best possible outcomes for our cataract patients, Elmquist Eye Group offers the state-of-the-art bladeless laser-assisted cataract surgery. An FDA-approved laser automates several steps of the procedure that previously had to be performed manually, and improves the precision, accuracy and safety of cataract surgery.

Cataracts can worsen over time and, if left untreated, can cause you to lose some of your eyesight. Schedule an evaluation with one of our physicians to examine your eyes and discuss the latest options in treatment and lens technology.
