An Exciting Time for Houston Cataract Surgery!

Return To Blog

Cataract surgery is the most commonly performed surgical procedure in the United States each year. As eye care providers, the field of cataract surgery has been one of the most exciting procedures to be able to offer to patients, simply because of the life-changing capabilities and advancements now available.

A few years ago, we were one of the first providers in Houston to offer laser cataract surgery, also known as Refractive Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery (ReLACS), and have been blown away by the results! ReLACS involves using a laser to perform many of the steps the surgeon used to perform by hand, including making corneal incisions and correcting small to moderate amounts of astigmatism. The laser also softens the cataract, making the removal of the cataract easier and quicker. This patient experiences less post-operative inflammation, which means you can get back to your normal activities that much faster!

In addition to ReLACS, we also offer our patients the most technologically advanced intraocular lenses (IOLs). These presbyopia-correcting lenses allow patients to see clearly at distance and near ranges, and we can tailor the specific IOL choice to your lifestyle needs. Whether you enjoy golfing, fishing, sewing, or cycling, there is an IOL for you! With the latest developments including the ReStor Toric and the Symfony Toric IOLs, we can even correct astigmatism and near vision at the same time.

It really is a great time for Houston cataract surgery, and we are eager to share these exciting advancements with you! Call Diagnostic Eye Center today to schedule your cataract evaluation with one of our board certified ophthalmologists, Dr. Marc Sanders and Dr. Andrew Salem. Our highly qualified surgical coordinators will be with you every step of the way to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience. We look forward to seeing you soon!
