Our Specialties

Laser Cataract Surgery

Unlike manual cataract surgery that requires a surgeon to make small incisions or phacoemulsification to begin the process of removing the old, clouded lens. While this step is crucial to removing the cataract and has been the standard practice for cataract surgery, the latest step in cataract surgery is to utilize laser-assisted surgery.

Laser cataract surgery provides your cataract surgeon greater access to removing the old cataract, which often means better results and a safer procedure overall.

  • Greater accuracy at IOL placement
  • Significantly reduces the need to reposition the IOL
  • Better visual outcomes
  • Manual Incisions have a higher chance of leakage (Can require multiple sutures to close.)
  • Laser cataract surgery breaks up the cataract into smaller pieces for a reduced risk of burning or visual distortion.
  • Laser Cataract Surgery relies on accurate measurements of the cornea, which is essential when correcting astigmatism.

Discover Laser Vision Correction

If you are among the 85 million Baby Boomers in the United States, you've probably noticed your eyes have changed. Most notably, presbyopia - the normal, age-related loss of near focusing ability - usually becomes a problem in our 40's, requiring new vision correction solutions.

Fortunately, LASIK or laser vision correction has improved the vision of countless individuals from poor, blurry vision to perfect vision 24/7.

If you're considering LASIK or laser vision correction in Ft. Lauderdale, visit our practice for a consultation with one of our eye doctors.
