What is a Cataract?

Cataracts can start with a subtle loss of color vibrancy and contrast sensitivity or they can cause blurring of vision. Left untreated, cataracts can develop further, becoming more severe and leading ultimately to significantly impaired vision which can make it difficult to perform daily activities safely or comfortably.

How Does Cataract Surgery Work?

Laser-assisted cataract surgery uses the precision and accuracy of a laser to provide you with the most advanced cataract procedure available. 

Traditional cataract surgery has evolved into a delicate, sophisticated, and gentle procedure making for a quick recovery. The techniques, instruments, and lenses used by our cataract surgeons at Denver Eye Surgeons are cutting edge.

step 1 of cataracts surgery

Step 1

Phacoemulsification with a small handpiece allows the creation of a very small wound.

Step 2

The surgeon uses an ultrasonic needle to break up and liquefy (emulsify) the cataract so it can be removed through a very small incision.

Step 3

A foldable intraocular lens (IOL) implant is placed permanently inside the eye to help focus light onto the retina, or the “film” of the eye.

Step 4

Vision returns quickly following cataract surgery and one can resume normal activities within a short period of time.
