The surgical team at Florida Eye Specialists performs state-of-the-art laser cataract surgery with premium intraocular lens implants (IOLs) when medically appropriate for the patient, for added precision, safety and comfort. To start the laser cataract procedure, the surgeon uses the FDA-approved LenSx femtosecond laser to make a micro-incision in the eye. Through this incision, the eye surgeon then uses a laser to break up the cataract-diseased lens into microscopic particles before gently flushing or suctioning them from the eye. The cataractous lens is replaced with an IOL to restore clear sight after surgery. Florida Eye Specialists offers a wide range of advanced IOLs, including astigmatism-correcting toric lenses as well as accommodating and multifocal IOLs, which allow patients to see well at multiple distances.
Laser cataract surgery is generally considered a painless procedure, thanks to topical anesthetic eye drops that are administered before surgery. Patients who undergo cataract surgery under the care of Florida Eye Specialists achieve a dramatic improvement in their vision. Depending on the type of IOL the patient chooses, he or she may be able to see clearly at several distances and, in certain cases, can greatly reduce or eliminate daily dependence on prescription eyewear.
In addition to laser cataract surgery, Florida Eye Specialists offers LASIK, PRK, corneal transplants, glaucoma treatments, cosmetic eyelid surgery and BOTOX Cosmetic and dermal filler treatments.
