What is Cataract Surgery?

 

Cataract surgery is a procedure in which the clouded natural lens from the eye (called a cataract) is removed and replaced with a crystal-clear lens.

 

A cataract surgery procedure allows the eye to properly see again by allowing a normal amount of light to enter the eye and focus properly.

 

If you have received a recommendation for cataract surgery in Los Angeles, we invite you to call us for “cataract surgeons near me” to receive the benefits of our state-of-the-art technologies and extensive experience treating cataracts and a wide range of eye problems.

While the traditional cataract surgery involving a blade to create an incision is still widely used, today we use a new approach to cataract surgery in Los Angeles that uses a Femtosecond laser to create a 2-millimeter incision through which the enter surgical procedure is performed providing benefits such as:

 

  • Easier on the eye tissue
  • Greater precision than the manual approach
  • Laser is safer
