Cataract Surgery

A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s natural lens that gradually leads to blurred vision, difficulty with glare, dulled colors, poor night vision, and increased nearsightedness (myopia). Cataracts generally develop as part of the natural aging process. However, diabetes, certain medications, genetics, and smoking may increase the risk of cataracts. Although eyeglasses may be prescribed to reduce the effects of cataracts and improve vision, the only permanent treatment is cataract surgery.

Dr. Thomas Aiello performs the latest “no-needle,” “no-stitch” microsurgical techniques of cataract surgery. In addition, they utilize premium intraocular lens implants (IOLs), which are used to replace the clouded lens. This refractive cataract surgery method allows patients to achieve clear, improved vision at all distances, often without the need for traditional eyewear.

How Is Cataract Surgery Performed?

During cataract surgery, one of the most frequently performed vision correction procedures, the clouded lens (cataract) is removed and replaced with an IOL. This type of vision correction surgery has helped millions of patients achieve 20/20 vision or better.

Dr. Thomas Aiello performs cataract surgery at Seashore Surgical Institute, an accredited state-of-the-art facility designed for maximum patient safety and comfort. The cataract surgery process lasts about an hour, which includes pre-surgery preparations as well as post-surgery patient care. First, topical eye drops are used to numb the eye and dilate the pupil. Next, the surgeon makes a tiny, self-sealing incision on the surface of the cornea through which the clouded lens is gently broken up and removed. Once the eye is free of cataracts, the surgeon carefully inserts a sophisticated lens implant designed to mimic the function and focusing abilities of the eye’s natural lens.

Our practice offers the latest, most advanced intraocular lens implants, including ReSTOR, ReZoom, Toric and Crystalens. AcrySof ReSTOR and ReZoom are multifocal IOLs, which are used to restore vision at all distances. The Toric IOL is used to correct pre-existing astigmatism and improve distance vision following cataract surgery. The Crystalens is an accommodating lens implant engineered to correct presbyopia as well as nearsightedness and farsightedness.
