Cataract Surgery


Cataracts are part of the normal aging process of the eyes. Over time, the natural lens inside the eye becomes cloudy.  This can lead to:

  • Decreased vision, especially at night
  • Glare
  • Halos around lights
  • Faded color vision

There are no eye drops or medications that cure cataracts. If you have early cataracts, a pair of glasses or a change in your glasses prescription may improve vision in the short term. The true treatment for cataracts is cataract surgery. Your doctor will help you decide when it is time to have surgery.

Modern cataract surgery involves a microsurgical procedure to carefully remove the natural lens of the eye. Once the natural lens is removed, a clear, artificial lens, called an intraocular lens implant, is inserted to restore your vision.

There’s a good chance you know someone who has cataracts or someone who has had cataract surgery. It is important to remember that no two peoples’ eyes are the same. Our surgeons tailor your surgical procedure and implant selection specifically for your eyes.

Cosmetic & Reconstructive Eyelid Surgery


Blepharoplasty for Excess Upper Eyelid Skin (Dermatochalasis)

  • Loss of skin elasticity can result in excess skin on the upper eyelid. The excess skin weighs heavily on the eyelid, blocking your upper field of vision and making it difficult to keep the eyelids open.
  • Evaluation involves a complete eye exam, visual field testing, and eyelid measurements.
  • Surgical repair is both cosmetic and functional.

Ptosis Repair for Drooping Upper Eyelids

  • Muscles that raise the upper eyelids can stretch over time making it difficult to hold your eyes open. Sometimes this can happen because of trauma to the eyelid.
  • Evaluation involves a complete eye exam, visual field testing, and eyelid measurements.
  • Surgical repair is both cosmetic and functional.

Repair of Eyelid Position

The eyelids play an important role in protecting the eyeball and your vision. The eyelids can change position over time due to aging, trauma, infection or previous surgery. Normally, the eyelids sit closely to the eyeball and help spread a healthy tear film across the eye with every blink. When the eyelids are not in proper position against the eyeball, the eyeball is exposed to the air, leading to dryness, irritation, redness and pain. If not addressed, poor eyelid position can lead to damage to the surface of the eye and permanent loss of vision.

  • Entropion is an inward turning of the eyelid which causes the eyelashes to rub against the eyeball.  Surgical repair of entropion is necessary to preserve the health of your eye and your vision.
  • Ectropion is an outward turning of the eyelid where the eyelid, usually the lower eyelid, falls away from the eyeball. Surgical repair of ectropion is necessary to preserve the health of your eye and your vision.
