Serving patients seeking cataract surgery in Palm Beach and the surrounding areas
Drs. David Mittleman and Alberto Ortiz of Mittleman Eye are top cataract surgeons who have treated thousands of patients in the Palm Beach area. The two surgeons combine their specialized training with state-of-the-art technology to provide safe treatment and exceptional visual results.
Cataract surgery involves removing the eye’s natural lens that has become clouded over time. Once removed, the lens is replaced with an artificial lens (IOL) to restore vision. Both Dr. Mittleman and Dr. Ortiz are trained and skilled in custom cataract surgery, which can address two common vision conditions: astigmatism and presbyopia. By utilizing a precise surgical technique and implanting an advanced IOL that addresses the astigmatism or presbyopia, custom cataract surgery can achieve a better visual outcome, with a decreased dependence on distance, computer and reading glasses.
In addition to cataract surgery, Mittleman Eye offers comprehensive eye care, including routine eye exams, and treatment for various eye conditions, including dry eye, corneal diseases, diabetes, glaucoma, macular degeneration and retinal disease.
More about Custom Cataract Surgery
Cataract surgery can be completed in approximately 15 to 20 minutes per eye. During the procedure, a small incision is made in the eye to remove the natural lens from its capsule. An IOL is then gently put into place to restore vision after surgery. In the case of astigmatism, Dr. Mittleman or Dr. Ortiz can make a precise corneal incision to correct the condition and then implant a Toric IOL. For patients with presbyopia, the surgeons can place a presbyopia-correcting lens for a marked decrease in dependency on glasses, contact lens and bifocals. In any case, visual recovery is rapid; most patients notice an improvement in their vision the following day.
