State-of-the-Art Cataract Treatment

A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens of the eye. To improve your vision, your doctor can remove the clouded lens and insert a clear artificial lens (known as an intraocular lens or IOL) in its place. Cataracts don’t return, meaning that this new lens should improve the quality of your vision for years to come.

The Moran Eye Center’s cataract service is dedicated to excellence in both the consultation and treatment of all types of cataracts. Our surgeons use state-of-the-art equipment and have experience with complicated cataract cases. This helps ensure exact diagnoses and best practices in medical and surgical care.

Custom Laser Surgery

The Moran Eye Center offers the most advanced laser surgery available. Previously, all cataract procedures were done manually with the surgeon using a blade for all incisions. Now, laser-assisted cataract surgery allows for a bladeless, computer-controlled procedure for more accurate and precise incisions, in a comfortable, relaxed setting.

Advanced Lens Options

Advanced lens options are also available that can be targeted for your precise visual needs, taking in to account your work, hobbies, and other daily activities, and providing the best possible vision. More information about different lens options is available here.
