A Look at the Cataract Surgery Procedure
What Exactly Is a Cataract?
We have a natural lens in our eye behind the iris (the colored portion of our eye) that focuses light onto an important membrane called the retina. This process helps our brain create sharp, clear visual images.
Sometimes, tissues inside the lens start to break down and clump together, thickening and clouding the lens. This is called a cataract. Cataracts affect how light hits your retina, which can make your vision foggy and blurry.
Cataracts are most often caused by aging. Eye injuries, previous eye surgeries, or medical conditions such as diabetes can also increase your risk. It is rare, but some patients are born with cataracts.

Trust Your Care to Experts in the Field Combining Skill & Cutting-Edge Technology
Our eye surgeons have decades of combined experience performing the most complex kinds of cataract surgeries. Our team includes clinical professors of ophthalmology and we are actively involved in a number of prestigious organizations, including the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.
Board-Certified & Award-Winning
Our doctors received years of specialized eye surgery training that many ophthalmologists have not. Our surgeons also passed an extremely difficult exam given by a distinguished board of their peers. Plus, a D Magazine poll recognized our team as the best eye doctors in the Dallas and Fort Worth, TX, metropolitan area.
Our ophthalmology-only surgery center features state-of-the-art equipment, including Alcon Centurion® phacoemulsification machines and top-of-the-line surgical instruments. All pre-operative measurements are performed on the Zeiss IOLMaster® 700 and OCULUS PentaCam® HR topography aids us in lens selection. We are also proud to offer the Alcon ORA System® to fine-tune lens calculations intra-operatively, which can be particularly helpful for patients who have undergone previous refractive surgery.
Simpler Post-Surgical Care
On rare occasions, proteins can build up behind your implanted IOL, clouding your vision. We offer a safe, effective outpatient laser procedure called a YAG capsulotomy to break up this protein without further surgery. We also offer combination eye drops, minimizing the number of drops our cataract surgery patients have to remember to take.

The Cataract Surgery Procedure
Combination Eye Drops for Streamlined Care
You should experience very little discomfort after surgery. Possible risks like mild pain, infection, or corneal swelling can be managed with specialized eye drops that we will provide you. These powerful, combination eye drops reduce the number of drops our patients need to take after the procedure.
Worried about the Treatment's Safety? Don't be.
Although every procedure carries some degree of risk, cataract surgery is incredibly safe.
Is Cataract Surgery Covered by Insurance?
Plans differ, but most insurance plans offer some coverage for the surgery and traditional IOLs. Our knowledgeable staff can work with your carrier to get you the maximum coverage possible.
Many of our patients choose to invest in extended depth-of-focus, multifocal, or trifocal lenses. These IOLs offer incredible benefits but do involve out-of-pocket costs. We accept major credit cards and you can also finance your cataract surgery through a trusted third-party lender, such as Wells Fargo Health Advantage®.
Contact us today for a personal estimate and more information on financing. Yes, cataract surgery and the IOL implant may be a significant investment, but restored clear, sharp vision can be considered priceless.
