Your doctor can discuss optimal treatment options for your cataracts. Surgery is a common, outpatient procedure. During the surgery, the lens of the eye is removed and replaced with an artificial implant called an intraocular lens (IOL).
At Aurora, our ophthalmologists use a variety of premium implants, including IOLs for astigmatism (called toric IOLs) and multifocal IOLs for distance and close vision. You’ll be able to see both near and far, so you shouldn’t need additional glasses to read or drive.
Our surgeons perform cataract surgery on an outpatient basis, and you can usually return home right after surgery. That’s because the method we use doesn’t involve patches, needles or stitches, making the surgery less painful. And you won’t have to worry about scarring.
