Providing cataract surgery with Crystalens HD, AcrySof ReSTOR, ReZoom in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Glendale, Paradise Valley and the surrounding area
Jay Schwartz, DO, is a board-certified ophthalmologist with advanced fellowship training. Dr. Schwartz has performed more than 30,000 LASIK procedures and thousands of cataract surgeries which has earned him a reputation for excellence throughout the state of Arizona. As a testament to his surgical skills, Dr. Schwartz is the team ophthalmologist for several professional sports teams, including the Phoenix Suns, the Phoenix Coyotes and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Dr. Schwartz is proud to offer the most advanced cataract surgery procedures to his patients. To begin the procedure, he creates a small incision in the eye. Then, he extracts the clouded lens by breaking it up through a process known as phacoemulsification. Once the clouded lens is removed, he implants a premium intraocular lens implant (IOL).
Dr. Schwartz offers several types of intraocular lenses, including the accommodating IOL Crystalens HD, multifocal AcrySof ReSTOR and ReZoom IOLs, as well as the monofocal Toric IOL. Crystalens HD, AcrySof ReSTOR and ReZoom IOLs improve the patient’s ability to see objects both near and far, while Toric IOLs correct for astigmatism.
Dr. Schwartz also offers Visian implantable collamer lenses (ICLs), which are placed over patients’ natural lenses. With Visian ICLs, patients can achieve clear vision and eliminate the need for eye glasses or contact lenses.
