Serving patients seeking cataract surgery with premium IOLs in Chester County and the surrounding area
The eye doctors at Chester County Eye Care Associates (CCEC) are board-certified and specially trained to perform cataract surgery using the latest and most advanced techniques available, including laser-assisted cataract surgery. They have performed over 15,000 cataract procedures, many of which have involved the replacement of the cloudy eye lenses (caused by the cataracts) with premium intraocular lenses (IOLs) that correct common refractive errors like myopia and hyperopia, providing the patient with sharper near and distance vision so that they no longer need to rely on glasses or contact lenses.
As specialists in their field, some of the doctors of Chester County Eye Care Associates lecture internationally on ocular surgery and disease, teaching other surgeons how to effectively incorporate the latest surgical techniques. In addition, some CCEC surgeons have also been voted “Top Docs” by Main Line Today Magazine and Philadelphia Magazine. All of the surgeons at CCEC use the most leading-edge technology available in ophthalmology, operating out of a state-of-the-art facility to provide the highest quality eye treatments and comprehensive follow-up care in a friendly and approachable environment.
In addition to cataract surgery, Chester County Eye Care Associates also offers diagnosis and effective treatments for eye conditions including macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and corneal diseases. They also offer blade-free LASIK surgery, a quick, safe vision correction procedure that often produces 20/20 or better vision.

Cataract Surgery at Chester County Eye Care Associates
At Chester County Eye Care Associates in Pennsylvania, patients can choose to have the cataract procedure with either conventional IOLs or premium IOLs. In both cases, the eye lens that has become clouded over due to the cataract is replaced with a clear lens implant; the conventional implants are standard, monofocal IOLs, while premium IOLs clear up the patient’s near or distance vision (or both) for 20/20 vision or better. The latest premium IOLs are used, including ReStor and Tecnis.
Both cataract procedures begin with the patient’s eye being numbed using anesthetic eye drops; this ensures that the patient is completely comfortable throughout the short procedure. The procedure is performed in less than 20 minutes, during which time the eye surgeon will create a small incision in the cornea, which is the clear top layer on the eye’s surface. The surgeon will then use a small ultrasound probe to break the lens into small pieces, and then suction them out of the eye. This procedure is quick and painless, and it requires no stitches since the corneal incision closes up naturally. Cataract surgery patients can resume normal daily activities immediately, and driving as early as the day after surgery. Vision improves quickly, as most patients report clearer vision within a day or two of surgery.
