Advanced Cataract Surgery Options

Patients now have a choice in the type of implant used in their cataract surgery. We are offering advanced implants

such as the multifocal ReSTOR, and the astigmatism correcting Toric lens implant. The lifestyle lenses are designed

to reduce your dependence on glasses after cataract surgery...up close, far away, and everything in between!


Our surgeon and staff members will help you decide which implant is right for you, based on your lifestyle needs and

your expectations. If it is time for cataract treatment, ask our staff for more information and find out about your options.
