Cataract Surgery


Dr. Sheth describes the treatment options patients can choose from when receiving cataract surgery at Sheth-Horsley Eye Center. Cataract surgery can be customized or combined with other procedures to target specific vision issues. This procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis, usually in less than 15 minutes, with a recovery period of less than a week.

1 00:00:12.400 --> 00:00:15.260 At the time of cataract surgery, there are a number of options to consider 2 00:00:15.290 --> 00:00:19.700 whether to have a standard intraocular lens versus a premium intraocular lens 3 00:00:19.720 --> 00:00:24.380 that can eliminate or reduce the need for distance or near glasses, 4 00:00:24.400 --> 00:00:29.140 as well as less whether to have laser assisted cataract surgery or advanced FICO 5 00:00:29.170 --> 00:00:33.180 multiplication surgery, which utilizes ultrasound. 6 00:00:33.210 --> 00:00:35.500 Additionally, we can perform simultaneous 7 00:00:35.530 --> 00:00:39.020 procedures to treat other conditions, like glaucoma, 8 00:00:39.050 --> 00:00:43.860 where we use microincisional glaucoma surgery, otherwise known as migs. 9 00:00:43.880 --> 00:00:45.720 Keep in mind, all of these options are 10 00:00:45.750 --> 00:00:50.660 available in an outpatient ambulatory surgical center setting. 11 00:00:50.680 --> 00:00:52.460 Because cataract surgery has advanced so 12 00:00:52.490 --> 00:00:56.380 much over the years, it is often performed in less than ten to 15 minutes. 13 00:00:56.410 --> 00:01:02.100 This results in quick recovery time, often within days to a week or two. 14 00:01:02.120 --> 00:01:04.180 Recovery for cataract surgery is much less 15 00:01:04.210 --> 00:01:08.460 than what most patients would expect after leaving the outpatient facility. 16 00:01:08.490 --> 00:01:12.700 Most patients only experience minimal discomfort, their vision dramatically 17 00:01:12.730 --> 00:01:18.210 improves within days, and they may resume all normal activities within a week. 18 00:01:18.240 --> 00:01:20.020 If anyone would like more details 19 00:01:20.040 --> 00:01:22.920 on cataract surgery, please contact our office and set up an appointment.
