Ophthalmic cataract surgeon, Dr. Neil B. Griffin is the first in the Myrtle Beach area to go beyond laser and offer cataract patients state-of-the-art and groundbreaking technology of the Zepto® microsurgical technology. Dr. Griffin is committed to providing world class technology and the most advanced vision diagnostics and surgical technologies.
Griffin Eye Center offers the most advanced lenses that are implanted through a highly refined surgical procedure. The precise, reproducible steps performed with the Zepto® microsurgical technology and state-of-the-art topography means better lens positioning, less trauma to the eye and more predictable visual results; things that are especially important if you want to reduce your dependence on glasses with one of the advanced IOLs we offer.
Another option Griffin Eye Center offers is The Light Adjustable Lens. Currently this is the only adjustable intraocular lens (IOL) available that allows optimization of your vision after lens implantation and healing. If you and Dr. Griffin select the Light Adjustable Lens, the first step is to have your cataract safely removed and the adjustable IOL implanted. The cataract removal and IOL implantation procedure is the same as if you selected a non-adjustable IOL.
What is unique about the Light Adjustable Lens is that once your eye has healed, you return to your eye doctor to have your vision tested. During this visit you will be able to preview and compare possible vision outcomes based on your unique preferences and lifestyle requirements before selecting a prescription for your adjustable lens. Your doctor will then apply a proprietary light treatment that precisely reshapes your implanted lens based on the visual correction that is needed to target your custom prescription.
Cataract surgery is only performed once in a person’s lifetime, so it is important to consider your lens options. At Griffin Eye Center, Dr. Griffin understands each eye is unique and offers more options to give you the best possible vision. He is board certified and fellowship trained, The National Consumer Advisory Board named Dr. Neil B.
