A cataract is when the natural lens inside the eye becomes discolored and clouded, resulting in hazy or blurred vision at all distances. By age 75, approximately 50% of Americans have cataracts. Surgery is the only way a cataract can be removed. More than 3 million cataract procedures are performed each year, making
it the most common surgery performed in the United States. This outpatient procedure is performed in our CMS (Center for Medicare Services) certified and AAAHC (Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care) accredited ambulatory surgery centers.

Cataract procedure:

  • 1. A small incision is made in the eye, and the cloudy lens is removed.
  • 2. A new lens is folded and inserted through the same incision.
  • 3. With the clear lens now in place, you can enjoy your improved vision!

Resources

Affordability: We can help you determine affordable financing, including flex plans and 12 months 0% interest options. Procedures that are covered by insurance, such as: Yag Laser Capsulotomy will be billed to insurance and co-pays and deductibles will apply. *Check with insurance for plan coverage.

Limitations: IIt is important to note that not everyone may qualify for all packages. Eye diseases including, but not limited to, corneal disease, retinal disease, glaucoma or dry eye may prevent patients from achieving 20/20 vision. All cataract surgery may require minimal glasses correction to achieve best vision at various stages of healing.
