The Lifestyle Vision ™ Custom Laser Cataract Surgery program at the Magruder Eye Institute is a cooperative process designed to better educate those patients considering laser cataract surgery regarding the latest surgical options available today. The doctor, staff and patient will work together to match the best Intraocular Lens, or IOL, taking into consideration each individual’s lifestyle, eye health, and vision goals.
The IOL is the artificial lens that will replace the clouded natural lens in the eye during the surgery. New Medicare rulings now allow for eye surgeons to offer all cataract patients more options including laser cataract surgery to reduce your need for glasses. In addition, each patient’s lifestyle now has a more dramatic impact on IOL selection.
It can be overwhelming for patients to find out that not only do they cataracts, but have to have cataract surgery. At Magruder Eye Institute, we will help you through it all. It is one of the most commonly performed Medicare reimbursed surgeries in the United States according to many sources.
Cataract surgery is routinely performed with small incision micro-surgery through a process known as phacoemulsification. The eye is prepped and dilated and the femtosecond laser can be used to soften the lens to make removal easier. Then, using the smallest possible incision, an ultrasonic probe is inserted to break up the cataract by pulverizing it. The probe suctions out the cataract material so that the hardened cataract can be removed.
After the cataract has been removed, the surgeon will implant an intraocular lens. The monofocal lens and the premium lens are the two choices for intraocular lens implants. It is important to talk to your doctor about which type of lens is needed to help correct your vision after cataract surgery.
