Providing Cataract surgery with ReZoom, AcrySof ReSTOR, Crystalens or toric IOLs in Wilmington, DE
Dr. Jesse Richman is a board-certified ophthalmologist specializing in cataract surgery, treatment for glaucoma and refractive surgery treatments such as LASIK and Visian implantable collamer lenses. He regularly participates in ongoing studies aimed at developing new technologies. In addition, he provides continuing education for eye doctors, residents and students.
By offering the most advanced cataract surgery available, Dr. Richman is able to treat cataracts in the least invasive way possible and even address other vision disorders while performing surgery. He offers dropless cataract surgery, laser-assisted cataract surgery, the iStent procedure, multifocal IOLs and toric IOLs.
Advanced Cataract Surgery
The cataract surgery begins with a mild anesthesia and topical anesthetic eye drops to numb the eye. This technique, which eliminates the bruising and soreness associated with injections, was pioneered at Kremer Eye Center. Patients on medications such as Coumadin and aspirin typically are able to continue taking their medications.
Once the anesthesia takes effect, the surgeon makes a tiny incision in the eye, breaks up and extracts the cataract using a technique called phacoemulsification, and implants an intraocular lens in its place. This technique allows patients to resume most day-to-day activities within a reasonable timeframe. Kremer Eye Center offers advanced intraocular lenses options to meet the unique needs of each patient.
Premium Lens Implants
Premium intraocular lens implants (IOLs) can eliminate or at least reduce your need for glasses, including reading glasses, following cataract surgery. They provide for a more expansive range of vision when compared with traditional single-focus lens implants. Dr. Richman offers the following state-of-the-art lenses: AcrySof ReSTOR, ReZoom, Crystalens and AcrySof Toric lenses (to correct astigmatism). They were among the first in the area to offer these lenses.
Dr. Richman will conduct an in-depth evaluation of your eyes to help you select the lens that best suits your needs.
Dropless Cataract Surgery
In an effort to improve our patients’ experience with cataract surgery, Dr. Richman offers patients the option of having cataract surgery performed in such a way that most patients no longer need to take drops before or after surgery. This advanced procedure is called “dropless cataract surgery.” In dropless cataract surgery, a medicine called Tri-Moxi-Vanc* is placed in the eye at the time of surgery. The medication is absorbed by the eye over the next month, providing patients the benefit of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medicines without needing drops.
Traditional cataract surgery requires the patient to use multiple eye drops before and after surgery, often up to four times a day for a month or more. In most cases, dropless cataract surgery eliminates the need to apply over 400 drops in patients who are having cataract surgery on both eyes!
Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery
This advanced medical procedure improves the precision and reproducibility of several of the most critical steps in cataract surgery. For those who want the most precise and predictable surgery, laser-assisted cataract surgery may be recommended. The laser is guided by a computer, allowing customization to your eye’s unique characteristics, giving the potential for better visual outcomes.
During your consultation, Kremer Eye Center will do advanced diagnostic testing to determine which cataract surgery options would best suit your needs.
At Kremer Eye Center, Dr. Richman and staff are always focused on what is best for our patients. The entire surgical team as well as our staff and technicians are dedicated to making you feel cared for and comfortable every step of the way.
