Hollingshead Eye Center Cataract Correction

What happens during a cataract procedure?

During the outpatient cataract procedure, our surgeons remove the clouded lens and implants an artificial replacement lens—either a standard monofocal lens or an advanced technology lifestyle lens—in its place. The incision heals naturally and no stitches are necessary. The procedure is performed in as little as fifteen minutes. After the procedure, you will be allowed to return home. Vision starts to improve immediately following cataract surgery, with complete recovery in a few days.

Cataracts & Astigmatism

By combining limbal relaxing incisions at the time of cataract surgery, your surgeon may also correct astigmatism.

Cataracts & Glaucoma

Cataract patients who also struggle with glaucoma may benefit from a state-of-the-art treatment option called iStent.
