At Pacific Vision Institute, the first action in planning cataract surgery in San Francisco is a set of advanced diagnostic tests. Our comprehensive, state-of-the-art tests allows us to achieve a higher level of accuracy and precision in planning surgery. Once your testing is complete, we will advise you of your options, including the use of advanced IOLs. Modern IOLs make it possible to resolve various vision conditions in conjunction with cataract surgery. Many of our patients come to us as they know our team is at the forefront of the latest advances in technology, and can not only replace a clouded lens, but help them achieve clear, accurate vision without the need to wear glasses or contacts after treatment.
While cataract surgery at Pacific Vision Institute is a custom procedure, it is not difficult to experience. One eye will be treated at a time, with about one month between surgeries. Your eye will be numbed with anesthetic drops, and you will be administered relaxing medication. During the procedure, the damaged natural lens is extracted, and replaced with a standard IOL or one of our range of custom IOLs to resolve existing vision problems, including nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. The type of IOL appropriate for your current vision is chosen to perfectly suit your individual case. The new IOL is then carefully implanted, and your procedure is complete.
If you need to undergo cataract surgery, we believe you should have access to the latest technological developments, and the least invasive surgical techniques. When under the care of Dr. Freidman, you can be confident that you are offered the option to correct any vision problems in conjunction with your surgery to achieve a superior outcome.
