Serving patients seeking cataract surgery in Charlotte and the surrounding area
Dr. Ivan Mac and Dr. Dara Khalatbari are both board-certified ophthalmologists who perform cataract surgery with the option of premium intraocular lens implants (IOLs) for clearer vision. Both surgeons operate out of Metrolina Eye Associates, a full-service eye care practice with locations in North and South Carolina. Dr. Mac has been named one of the nation’s top cataract and refractive surgeons by the Consumers’ Research Council of America. Dr. Khalatbari is a specialist in “no-stitch, no-needle” cataract surgery, and has been asked to present at numerous ophthalmology meetings across the nation.
Drs. Mac and Khalatbari offer traditional cataract surgery (using a blade) and laser cataract surgery, using the advanced and painless “no-needle, no-stitch” surgical method that requires no injections or stitches. As a surgical option for either procedure, patients have the choice of premium IOLs that include monofocal IOLs (for either clearer near or distance vision), multifocal IOLs (for both clearer near and distance vision) and toric IOLs (for the correction of astigmatism). Using one of these IOLs, patients can achieve not only cataract-free vision, but clearer vision than even before cataracts!
Along with cataract surgery, Drs. Mac and Khalatbari also offer LASIK surgery, general and pediatric eye care and eyelid surgery at their Metrolina Eye Associates locations.

No-Stitch, No-Needle Cataract Surgery at Metrolina Eye Associates
The “no-stitch, no-needle” cataract surgery that Drs. Mac and Khalatbari offer at Metrolina Eye Associates is a laser-assisted procedure that can be completed in less than 10 minutes. The procedure is painless, and involves tiny incisions precisely made using the most advanced laser technology. The laser is then used to break up the cataract, which is then easily washed out of the eye. This easy, pain-free procedure requires no uncomfortable injections or stitches, and requires almost no downtime. Patients are free to go about their daily lives within a day of surgery, and can expect sharp-focus vision within a week.
