The introduction of laser technology in cataract surgery has been one of the most important developments in refractive surgery, taking the procedure to a new level of safety and precision. At Center For Sight, we are thrilled to offer our cataract patients the sharpest, clearest vision possible with advanced intraocular lenses and revolutionary laser technology. The LENSAR laser, specifically developed for cataract surgery, performs some of the most intricate steps of the surgery with incredible computer-guided accuracy. If you desire to reclaim your once-clear vision and reduce or eliminate your need for glasses, laser cataract surgery is the preferred approach.

"Ninety-nine percent of our patients who have had advanced lens surgery would both choose it again and recommend it to their friends and family."

How do I know which lens to choose?
Today’s cataract patients are fortunate in that there are many lens options to help them achieve their desired visual outcome. For many patients, the ability to see without corrective lenses is the most appealing outcome; this result is attained through selecting an advanced intraocular lens. Ninety-nine percent of our patients who have had advanced lens surgery would both choose it again and recommend it to their friends and family. We are especially proud that Center For Sight has been recognized as the world’s leading practice in implanting advance lenses1. Other patients may decide that seeing only up close or at a distance would enhance their quality of life; these lenses are called custom lenses, as they allow you to customize your visual outcome. Through combining state-of-the-art technology with advanced and custom intraocular lenses, we can achieve remarkable visual outcomes for our patients, restoring their vision to a more youthful state.
