Cataract Treatment Options in Michigan and Ohio
In the beginning stages of cataracts, it’s unlikely that eyesight will be affected heavily. Usually, it just calls for a heavier prescription. But when cataracts begin to damage vision, they should be surgically removed. Advancements in technology, combined with the expert eye surgeons of Specialty Eye Institute, make this process easy. We have many different treatment options, allowing you to continue living your life with the vision that you want.
Traditional Cataract Surgery
Traditional Cataract Surgery does not require stitches and is very safe and efficient. Recovery time is minimal, and most patients get their new prescription eyeglasses after only 14 days. Complications are few and far between, and usually are easily repairable. Learn more about traditional cataract surgery ⇒
Laser Cataract Surgery
This surgery is now a reality, and in Michigan, it is available at Specialty Eye Institute. Specialty Eye Institute was the first to have the femtosecond laser in Michigan.
Traditional cataract surgery is considered to be one of the safest and most successful procedures performed in medicine today. Now, a technological breakthrough with laser cataract surgery is available that has significantly improved the precision of several of the most critical steps in cataract surgery. With laser cataract surgery, the doctors at Specialty Eye Institute will customize your procedure to your eye’s unique characteristics, resulting in more predictable outcomes while potentially making cataract surgery even safer.
In addition to using the femtosecond laser to accomplish many of the surgical steps that were traditionally performed by hand, we use the best and latest innovations in cataract surgery, such as topical anesthesia with drops (eliminating the need for any kind of shot in the eye), sutureless small-incision through the cornea, and foldable intraocular lenses.
The precise, reproducible steps performed by the laser mean better lens positioning, less trauma to the eye, and more predictable visual results which are especially important with lifestyle lens options. Learn more about laser cataract surgery ⇒
