I will personally meet with you to examine your unique eyes, review imaging, and assess your candidacy for the lens option you would like to have for your eyes.

At the time of your surgery, your dysfunctional natural lens will be surgically removed with laser light and ultrasonic technology, and replaced by a transparent, high-tech lens, called an intraocular lens (IOL).

This specialized device will remain with you for life and becomes the basis for your vision. You have a choice as to what lens and what future vision ability you can receive.
