Serving patients seeking cataract surgery in Charlotte and the surrounding area
Dr. Ivan Mac is a board-certified ophthalmologist who performs cataract surgery with the option of premium intraocular lens implants (IOLs) for clearer vision. He operates 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. Mac offers 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, Dr. Mac also offers LASIK surgery, general and pediatric eye care and eyelid surgery at Metrolina Eye Associates locations.
To schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Mac, please contact Metrolina Eye Associates by calling either the Monroe office at (704) 289-5455 or the Matthews office at (704) 234-1930.
No-Stitch, No-Needle Cataract Surgery at Metrolina Eye Associates
The “no-stitch, no-needle” cataract surgery that Dr. Mac offers 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.
