What Are Cataracts?
Cataracts are a very common eye condition that can cause blurry vision, among many other symptoms. Inside your eye is a clear lens that focuses light onto the back of your eye so you can see. As you age, the proteins that make up the clear lens start to clump together and make the lens cloudy. The cloudy lens blocks light from reaching the back of your eye, making your vision blurry. Cataracts usually develop slowly over time. At first, you might just need more light to see things up close or have more trouble with glare while driving at night. However, as cataracts worsen, your vision might get more blurry or colors start looking faded. Eventually, you will need cataract surgery to restore your vision. Cataract surgery is a safe and effective procedure that can allow you to see clearly once again.
Laser Cataract Surgery
Clear Vision Center specializes in laser cataract surgery, which uses advanced laser technology for a safe and optimal outcome. Laser cataract surgery uses state-of-the-art technology to perform most steps of the procedure with a laser instead of a scalpel or handheld tools used in traditional cataract surgery. By using a laser, your surgeon is able to perform the procedure with unparalleled safety and precision. Clear Vision Center uses a femtosecond laser for its cataract procedures with advanced technology lenses (IOL) such as the Rayner EMV advanced distance lens, and the Alcon PanOptix trifocal lens.
Benefits of Laser Cataract Surgery:
- Painless, bladeless procedure
- Fast recovery
- Increased accuracy and precision
- Reduces astigmatism and need for glasses
Traditional Cataract Surgery
In traditional cataract surgery, the surgeon uses a scalpel to make a small incision and remove the cataract. They may then break the cataract into smaller pieces with an ultrasonic device to easily rinse the cataract from the eye. After the lens is removed during your cataract surgery, the surgeon will insert a new intraocular lens (IOL) into the eye. Traditional cataract surgery may result in needing glasses after surgery.

Advanced Multifocus IOL
With skilled selection and placement by an experienced surgeon, a multifocus IOL corrects distance, intermediate (computer), and near vision. It also corrects mild-moderate degrees of astigmatism. Patients may in some cases require mild readers for very tiny print, particularly in dim lighting conditions. Nighttime glare and halos are a possibility, but in most cases do not impact your ability to drive at night. Examples of this lens are the J&J Tecnis Multifocal, J&J Synergy, Alcon PanOptix, and Alcon Vivity IOLs.
Advanced Single Focus IOL
With skilled selection and placement by an experienced surgeon, an advanced single focus lens goes beyond traditional (basic) lens optics to provide not only higher quality distance vision, but also corrects astigmatism and provides extended depth of focus. Two examples of this advanced technology are the Rayner EMV lens and the J&J Eyhance toric lens, which expand the traditional range of focus to include distance & midrange vision (computer), and in many cases moderate sized near print. (Most will still require reading glasses for fine print with this option). The improved distance quality and increased depth of focus without creating nightime driving glare and halos make this upgrade a very popular option for our patients.
