Premium Cataract Surgery
Cataract surgery is one of the most common surgical procedures performed in North America today.
Most people will develop cataracts at some stage in their lives. A cataract is a clouding of the eyes natural lens. When the lens becomes cloudy, it affects how the light passes through the eye causing blurry vision. As the cataract worsens, spectacles will no longer clear up your visual disturbances.
In North America, patients are required to read the 20/50 line on the eye chart to maintain legal driving. Your Optometrist will monitor this closely and ensure that he/she refers you to an Ophthalmologist when the decreased vision begins to affect your quality of life (driving, reading, sports, day to day activities).
At the Burlington Laser Eye Centre, we perform premium cataract procedures for patients seeking advanced diagnostics and premium intraocular implants. Traditionally, surgeons have utilized standard monofocal implants, which are designed to correct vision for one distance only. Premium implants are available to correct for distance, intermediate, near and astigmatism. This option is designed to provide patients with less dependence on spectacles. This option is not for everyone and a thorough consultation process will assist you and your surgeon in choosing the implant that best suits your lifestyle and your eyes.
Our premium cataract centre is an accredited operating room and is designed to allow your surgeon to provide the highest level of care.
A full surgical team is present during your procedure and you will be provided with the care and professionalism you expect and deserve. The surgeons and staff at the Burlington Laser Eye Centre will keep you informed and comfortable each step of the way.
