Dr. Farr and Dr. Hunter have completed advanced training in order to perform and offer laser assisted Cataract surgery for their patients.

Innovative technology, with little to no down-time.

If you have cataracts, you may be experiencing problems such as blurred distorted vision, glare from sunlight or headlights, or trouble focusing on certain objects. Colors may appear more dim or less vibrant. When these symptoms begin to affect your daily activities, you may want to consider state-of-the-art laser cataract surgery. Board-certified ophthalmologists, Dr. Farr and Dr. Hunter, continually apply innovative technology, such as laser assisted Cataract surgery, the most interactive lens implants which can maximize your vision, and the Drop Less Cataract procedure. The new lens implant designs can correct astigmatism and even give you distance and near-vision with a multifocal design. The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, and patients typically resume normal activity the very next day.

We help you choose the right lens implant.

Once you’ve made the decision to undergo cataract surgery, your doctor will begin to inform you of the different lens implants that best suit your needs. The traditional lens was a Monofocal lens implant, which enabled for vision of one distance, typically for distances far away. However, you can now choose from newer, more innovative lenses: multifocal or toric.

Multifocal lenses have multiple focal points, designed to replace cataracts and correct presbyopia in order to provide a full range of vision; near, intermediate and distance vision. These lenses also offer enhanced image quality at all distances.

Toric lenses are astigmatism correcting monofocal lens implants. These lenses have a single focal point designed to correct for cataracts and pre-existing astigmatisms, while also providing distance vision. Glasses would still be needed for near vision activities, such as reading.

The surgery process:

After anesthesia and the numbing of the eye, your cataract surgeon will be ready to start the procedure. First, they will create a very small incision in the cornea and insert a tiny high-frequency ultrasound probing device to break down the cataract. The cloudy cataract is broken down and removed from the eye; this process is called phacoemulsification.

The artificial lens implant (IOL) is then inserted through a tube and unfolds once in place. IOLs will have haptic and “lens arms” to hold it in place. With the cataract removed and the IOL in place, light can once again travel unimpeded to the back of the eye and focus on the retina where the image is interpreted and transmitted to the brain. The end result is clear, youthful vision.
