Richard Burns, MD, is a board-certified ophthalmologist who specializes in refractive and cataract surgery. Dr. Burns has more than 25 years’ experience, during which time he has achieved an outstanding surgical record. In addition to being one of the top 10 implanting surgeons in the country, he is also one of the few cataract surgeons in Southern California to perform cataract surgery with the advanced multifocal AcrySof ReSTOR intraocular lens implant, the Crystalens implant and the Toric (astigmatism correcting) implant. In recognition of his remarkable surgical skills, Dr. Burns has earned a reputation for excellence throughout the San Diego, Hemet and Temecula areas.
Dr. Burns performs advanced refractive cataract surgery. To begin the procedure, he creates a small incision in the eye. Next, he carefully extracts the clouded lens (cataract) and replaces it with an intraocular lens implant (IOL). Once the IOL has been inserted, he can correct any refractive flaws with laser vision correction procedures to produce clearer vision. Dr. Burns offers the accommodating Crystalens IOL, which improves the eye’s ability to change focus from near to distant objects, as well as the multifocal Restor IOL that corrects for near, intermediate and far distances. He also offers Toric IOLs, which correct for astigmatism, promoting significantly clearer vision at all ranges of view.
In addition, Dr. Burns offers LASIK surgery, LASEK, PRK, LTK and refractive lensectomy (RLE) to give patients clearer vision and reduce their dependence on eye glasses or contact lenses.
