East Bronx Eye Surgeon

Cataract Surgery in East Bronx

East Bronx Eye SurgeonDo you think, or have you been told by a doctor, that your eyes are developing cataracts? If so, it is most likely that you will be considering cataract surgery over the coming months or year. Today cataract surgery can be performed by laser, under local anesthesia. There is no discomfort to the patient, and it is very successful in restoring a patient’s clear vision. So, if you think you would like to learn more about this surgery, contact our east Bronx eye surgeon at Katz Eye Center.

Dr. Katz, has been a board-certified ophthalmologist and east Bronx eye surgeon for over 25 years. In our practice, he uses the most cutting edge diagnostic and treatment procedures. One of his many areas of specialty is cataract implant surgery. He also is happy to offer advanced premium lenses for implantation during cataract surgery. Use of these lenses generally means that patients will no longer need glasses after surgery. This is an added benefit of cataract surgery, which has a primary benefit of allowing the patient to see clearly again. Cataracts will begin with blurring vision, and eventually move on to clouding and fully obstructing vision if not treated. Not so long ago, cataract patients had to undergo painful cataract surgery, which included a long recuperation period. However, today patients can undergo cataract laser surgery in usually about 30 minutes, with a very short period of healing.

Our east Bronx eye surgeon sees many patients each month who need cataract surgery. Cataracts are a common problem caused by the normal aging process. Proteins in the eye begin to cluster together, causing the eye’s lens to become clouded. Light becomes scattered as it passes through the lens, resulting in a blurry image. At this point, cataract surgery is the only means of correcting this problem. Luckily, it is a very easy solution. In fact, over 18 million people undergo cataract surgery every year. Before surgery, Dr. Katz and you will determine which lens is to be implanted in your eye. There are two types of lenses to choose from. The two choices are multifocal or monofocal lenses. A multifocal lens will correct both cataracts and presbyopia. You may need to consult your insurance company regarding which type of lens will be covered in your surgery. Lenses can also be implanted which will correct astigmatism. If you are interested in talking to Dr. Katz about having cataract surgery to correct your vision, contact us today at Katz Eye Center to make an appointment.
