If you are going to be having cataract surgery, you should definitely visit us at our Katz Eye Center. Our board certified ophthalmic surgeon, Dr. Steven J. Katz, specializes in premium lens implant surgery East Bronx for cataracts, and laser and refractive surgery.
If you have cataracts, and have lost your vision, you will need to have cataract surgery. The good news is that this is an extremely safe and effective surgery which will use a laser to replace your damaged natural lens with a new man made lens. The lens that is inserted into your eye is called an intraocular lens, and is referred to as an IOL. There are now different types of lenses to choose from when you have cataract surgery. You can either get a multifocal or a monofocal lens. A multifocal IOL can correct both cataracts and presbyopia. This means that cataract patients will no longer need to use reading glasses in order to see clearly. A multifocal lens will allow you to see clearly up close, far away, and in between. This means that most patients who get this type of lens during cataract surgery will totally eliminate their need for any type of glasses. Some patients have an adjustment period after the surgery where they may see rings around lights. This premium lens implant surgery East Bronx is very beneficial for many of our patients because of the freedom it affords them from having to wear glasses, as well as by providing our patients with excellent vision. If you get a monofocal lens implants, you will still need to wear glasses for reading and for up close activities, but your far vision will most likely be excellent. There are also toric lenses which can be used during premium lens implant surgery East Bronx which will correct astigmatism. If you need to have cataract surgery, we hope you will meet with our eye doctor to discuss the different types of IOLs available.

When a patient is looking for laser vision correction in the East Bronx, they can get either LASIK or PRK surgery to correct their refractive errors. During laser vision correction, a laser is used to reshape the cornea to correct farsightedness, nearsightedness, or astigmatism. PRK surgery is often recommended for patients who do not qualify for LASIK surgery; this may occur due to the fact that a patient has a cornea that is not thick enough to withstand the LASIK surgical process which calls for a flap to be made in the cornea. Both LASIK and PRK surgeries are performed while the patient remains completely comfortable using anesthetic eye drops which are placed into the patient’s eyes. This surgeries are very short, lasting only minutes, and are generally performed on both eyes at one time. Many patients who have LASIK surgery are able to return to work or their daily activities the very next day. Recovery from PRK surgery will take a bit longer. During the recovery process, our doctor will most likely prescribe antibiotic and anti-inflammatory eye drops to be self-administered by the patient. There will be several follow-up appointments to make sure that the recovery is proceeding as expected. Our patients thoroughly enjoy the fact that they are now able to see clearly, and no longer need to reach for their eyeglasses immediately upon getting up in the morning.

Laser cataract surgery in East Bronx
If you are experiencing any vision changes, such as having problems seeing at night while you are driving, you will definitely want to visit our Katz Eye Center to see what is causing your vision problem. Blurred vision is just one of the signs that you may have cataracts, and possibly may need laser cataract surgery in East Bronx.
At our vision practice, our board-certified ophthalmic surgeon, Dr. Steven J. Katz, will be able to assess your individual eye health situation, and see if your problem is cataracts or some other type of eye problem. Cataracts can easily be diagnosed as part of our comprehensive vision exam. If you are diagnosed with cataracts, it means that you have a clouded natural lens. It is impossible to tell how far a cataract will progress, however, most cataracts will go on to cause blindness if left untreated. Some patients choose to have their cataracts initially treated by getting a new lens prescription to correct their vision. However, eventually most patients will need to have laser cataract surgery in East Bronx in order to correct this vision problem. Today, laser cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed eye surgeries; it is considered to be extremely safe and provides excellent results. During laser cataract surgery, the patient remains in total comfort as eye drops are used to anesthetize the eyes. The procedure is done on an outpatient basis, and takes a very short period of time to perform. During the laser cataract surgery, a tiny incision is made in the eye through which the damaged natural lens is removed and a new man-made lens is inserted into the eye. Today there are several different types of lenses which can be used to replace the damage lens. Many patients still choose to get an intraocular lens that provides excellent vision at one distance. There are newer multifocal intraocular lenses that allow a patient to see without glasses at several distances.
