The only effective treatment for a cataract is to remove the lens. The method behind this procedure has changed over the years, due in large part to the introduction of modern techniques and innovative technology.
Not all that many years ago, surgery to remove cataracts involved making a large incision in the eye—an incision that had to be closed with stitches, which made recovery lengthy and uncomfortable. Because the eye’s lens had been removed, the patient had to wear eyeglasses with thick lenses.
Now, it is possible to restore clear vision and reclaim your life with a more comfortable and convenient procedure than ever before. Modern cataract surgery is quick, taking less than 10-minutes to perform, and is an outpatient procedure. It includes:
Not only is cataract treatment the most frequently performed surgery in the United States, it is also one of the most successful. More than 99% of patients who undergo cataract removal rank their vision as significantly improved.
The surgeons at Mattax Neu Prater Eye Center have removed more than 50,000 cataracts.
Patients with both cataracts and glaucoma may benefit from iStent®. This innovative technology for controlling eye pressure is the smallest medical device ever approved by the FDA, and is placed in the eye during cataract surgery. In a U.S. clinical trial, iStent patients who achieved a target pressure of < 21 were more likely not to need their medications than patients with cataract surgery only.
Mattax Neu Prater gladly accepts Medicare assignment.
