Want to be Less Dependent on Glasses after Cataract Surgery?
As we age, proteins begin to clump together inside the natural lens of the eye. This causes the lens of the eye to become cloudy and light rays to scatter inside the eye instead of focusing directly on the back of the eye (retina) and creates a blurred vision. A cataract is a common vision disorder and part of the aging process.
The days of waiting for your cataract to appear “ripe” are gone. Advancements in cataract surgical procedures and lens implant technology have made it now one of the safest and most successful surgeries that you can have.
You only have one set of eyes and choosing to have cataract surgery is an important decision. Most people want to be less dependent on eyeglasses after cataract surgery. They don’t want the hassles associated with eyeglasses for both near and distance vision. Advanced cataract surgery allows the surgeon to tailor your procedure with the goal of reducing your dependency on glasses or contact lenses.
Advanced cataract surgery requires special expertise of a cataract surgeon. Griffin Eye Center, Surgeon, Neil B.Griffin, M.D., specializes in refractive cataract surgery and has been named one of the top cataract surgeons in both North and South Carolina. Dr. Griffin and his highly experienced staff offer a consultation to help you decide which lens will fit your unique lifestyle.
Dr. Neil B. Griffin uses the most advanced technology available, including highly advanced intraocular lenses (IOLS) and/or the new light adjustable lens that is adjusted after cataract surgery.
Dr. Griffin uses the latest groundbreaking technology of the Zepto® for precise capsulotomy. This device is performed as a routine step during the actual cataract surgery. The Zepto® microsurgical technology is incorporated into the actual cataract surgery procedure and does not extend the procedure time. Most cataract laser systems require that patients make a separate stop prior to the operating room for the laser procedure. Most laser systems require that a suction applanation device be placed on the eye before the cataract procedure and they all extend the overall procedure time.
Dr. Griffin received his highly specialized fellowship in cornea and external disease from the University of Texas in Houston. He is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and is also a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
