Providing cataract surgery in Austin and the surrounding area
L. Shawn Wong, MD, is a board-certified ophthalmologist with expertise in refractive and cataract surgery. Because of his advanced surgical skills and techniques, Dr. Wong has earned a reputation for excellence throughout the Austin area. He complements his extensive experience and education with customized, compassionate care to achieve the best results possible.
Dr. Wong specializes in “no-stitch, no-patch” cataract surgery with premium intraocular lens implants (IOLs). He begins the procedure with a small self-healing incision in the eye, which he uses to extract the clouded lens. Then, he inserts a precision lens implant (IOL) specially designed to maximize various ranges of vision.
Today’s advanced multifocal IOLs (such as Symfony® Tecnis, ReSTOR or ReZoom) can correct near, intermediate and distance vision. Some types of IOLs can also correct astigmatism. Unlike the eye’s natural lens, the IOLs do not deteriorate over time.
In addition, Dr. Wong performs refractive lensectomy, a procedure that replaces clients’ natural lenses with advanced IOLs. With this procedure, clients can reduce or eliminate their dependence on eye glasses or contact lenses and prevent the development of cataracts.
