Cataract Surgery: What is the Experience?

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.
