Since each patients’ eye is unique Dr. Griffin provides a full range of intraocular lenses with the most advanced surgical technologies to help patients be less dependent on glasses and enjoy visual freedom. He is currently the first ophthalmologist in the region to offer 4 types of advanced cataract surgery lenses; the extended depth of focus lens, multi-focal, Toric options such as Eyhance®, and the new RXSight® Light Adjustable Lens.

Griffin Eye Center continues to be at the forefront of the latest technology for both Cataract and LASIK surgery. Dr. Neil Griffin offers Zepto® a device that was designed specifically to perform precise capsulotomy for advanced cataract surgery. Zepto® delivers an edge that is consistently stronger when compared to femtosecond laser and manual capsulotomy.

How LASIK Works

Dr. Griffin prefers Zepto® over the current lasers because Zepto® 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.

CLAREON® PanOptix is designed to consistently deliver exceptional distance vision. Utilizing Alcon’s most advanced BioMaterial and proprietary edge design, Clareon® delivers exceptional clarity that lasts. Your cataract patients can enjoy sharp, crisp vision with an IOL designed to help reduce PCO and edge glare.
