During cataract surgery, the clouded lens is removed and replaced with an intraocular lens, or IOL. These lenses function much like a natural one, bending the incoming light so that it focuses correctly and provides clear vision. Cataract surgery is very safe and very effective. It's a great way for patients to restore their vision and put a stop to the progressive vision loss caused by the cataract.
The only way to know if this surgery is right for you is to visit Dr. Walton for a one-on-one consultation and exam. He will make sure you know all of your options for seeing clearly once again. At our practice, Dr. Walton offers the standard cataract procedure as well as a laser-assisted procedure. While the laser procedure is not covered by insurance, it does provide maximum precision, optimum results and eliminates the need for eyeglasses.
