About Laser Cataract Surgery
We discuss cataract surgery with patients when their best-corrected vision is not adequate for their needs and the cataract is the primary reason for their visual loss. For example, cataract surgery is considered when an individual has difficulty with driving, reading, or other activities of daily life. It is performed as an elective (non-emergency) procedure.
The surgeons at ECI are thrilled to be able to offer advanced femtosecond laser cataract surgery with laser-guided astigmatism management and quicker vision. We perform microincisional cataract surgery that is done under topical anesthesia and does not require the use of stitches in most cases. After the bulk of the natural lens is removed, an intraocular lens implant is implanted. We have excellent results in selecting the proper power of lens implant for each patient to provide them with optimal post-op vision.
Immediately following surgery, patients usually report minimal discomfort and are often back to their normal daily activities within days of surgery. Our typical post-cataract surgery patient is delighted with their improved vision and functioning. Our doctors take pride in delivering personalized care for laser cataract surgery patients in Santa Rosa and Petaluma, CA.
