Melbourne Cataract Surgeon Dr. Rafael Trespalacios
Rafael Trespalacios, MD, is a board-certified ophthalmologist treating cataract patients at TRES VISION GROUP, a full-service eye care facility. Dr. Trespalacios, or “Dr. Tres,” as he is referred to by patients, has been selected by respected colleagues in the field of cataract and LASIK surgery as one of the “Best Doctors” in the country. He is one of only a handful of surgeons in the world with surgical outcomes so incredible that they are insurable through VisionLock. As a leading eye surgeon in central Florida, Dr. Tres is familiar with the newest sight-saving technologies and procedures in the area. He was the first eye surgeon in central Florida to perform the iStent procedure, the first in east central Florida to use an ICL, the first to perform the ultra-thin DSAEK procedure, the first eye surgeon in the state of Florida to perform the bilateral Intacs procedure, the first and only provider of the IEK procedure in central Florida, and the first eye surgeon in east central Florida to use placenta tissue to reconstruct the ocular surface of a blinded patient. Dr. Tres frequently donates his surgical services to underserved communities throughout central Florida through the “Gift of Sight” program. In 2012, Dr. Tres performed an IEK procedure at no cost for this organization.
At TRES VISION GROUP, Dr. Trespalacios provides comprehensive eye care, including cataract removal surgery with premium intraocular lens implants (IOLs). Together with his staff, Dr. Trespalacios is dedicated to combining advanced ophthalmic technology, exceptional skill and an overall caring, compassionate nature to deliver customized care and highly accurate vision correction results to his patients.
Dr. Trespalacios performs cataract surgery with the CataLāze system at TRES VISION GROUP. Thanks to ORA and Verion technologies, he can analyze and measure the eye for treatment that is tailored to the individual patient. To begin cataract removal surgery, Dr. Trespalacios creates a blade-free, precise incision in the eye, through which he accesses the cataractous (cloudy) eye lens. He then uses laser energy to break up the cataractous lens into small pieces. The eye surgeon next replaces the clouded lens with an IOL, which he inserts through the original incision. TRES VISION GROUP offers a variety of IOL options, including premium IOLs, to accommodate the diverse vision correction needs of his patients.
Dr. Trespalacios performs cataract surgery with topical anesthesia, so patients do not feel any pain during the procedure. Cataract patients who undergo eye surgery with Dr. Trespalacios notice clearer vision at multiple distances and many are able to reduce their daily reliance on prescription eyewear.
In addition to cataract removal surgery, TRES VISION GROUP offers advanced cataract and glaucoma treatment with FDA-approved iStent ® surgical therapy, laser eye surgery such as LASIK, management of diabetic eye conditions and general eye care services.
