Types of Cataract Surgery

Types of Cataract Surgery

There are several types of cataract surgery procedures available, which vary based on the technology and the type of lens used.

Laser Cataract Surgery

Loden iVision Centers specializes in Laser iCataract™ Surgery, which uses state-of-the-art technology for a safe and optimal outcome. Laser cataract surgery is performed with a laser instead of a scalpel or handheld tool, which is used in traditional cataract surgery. By using a laser, your doctor is able to perform the procedure with unparalleled safety and precision. Loden iVision Centers uses a femtosecond laser for its premium iCataract procedure.

Traditional Cataract Surgery

In traditional cataract surgery, the surgeon uses a scalpel to make a small incision and remove the cataract. They may then break the lens into smaller pieces with an ultrasonic device to easily remove it from the eye. After the lens is removed during your cataract surgery, they will insert a new intraocular lens (IOL) into the eye.

Cataract Surgery Lens Options

Loden iVision Centers offers several IOL options, based on your specific vision needs. By choosing to have Advanced Laser iCataract Surgery with a Lifestyle Lens, you may be able to see the world as well as you did when you were younger, without the hassle of glasses or contacts. Thanks to modern advancements, there’s never been a better time to have cataract surgery! There are many lens options that will allow you to eliminate cataracts as well as reduce your dependence on glasses and contacts.

Provided by Citysearch - Thanks to Dr. Loden and his staff. I had ILASIK yesterday with the guarantee that I would have 20/20 or better. Now it's the day after and sure enough I have 20/20 in both eyes and Dr. Loden says ""it will only get better."" Everything he has said has been spot on so there is no need to doubt him now. His staff was the nicest people I've ever met in a business environment. If anyone deserves a award it would be Loden Vision Center.
