When you have refractive cataract surgery in Hawthorne NJ at our eye care practice, the blurred natural lens of the eye will be removed, and be replaced with a man-made lens. This lens will be able to restore your vision, and will not develop cataracts. In the early stages of cataracts, our eye doctor can write updated lens prescriptions for you which will allow you to see clearly again. However, as cataracts progress, and your daily vision becomes impaired, you will want to have cataract surgery. When cataract surgery is performed at our vision practice our eye doctor will use a technique called phacoemulsification; this surgery is performed through a tiny incision in the eye. The natural lens is broken up and suctioned out of the eye, and then the new man-made lens is permanently inserted into the eye through the same incision. This surgery performed on an outpatient basis while the patient remains totally comfortable due to the use of local anesthesia. The surgery takes very short time to perform - generally about 30 minutes. Recovery from this surgery is generally comfortable for the patient. This is in part due to the fact that there is not any need for sutures or bandages after the surgery. This type of cataract surgery is often referred to as “no stitch cataract surgery.” Our ophthalmologist is highly skilled in this procedure, and is also experience in treating any complications that can arise from cataract surgery.
