The best way to treat a cataract is with surgery that removes the old, clouded lens and replaces it with a new, artificial one.
Lens replacement is also an effective treatment for other conditions that sometimes accompany cataracts, such as presbyopia.
As eyes age, the natural human lens sometimes needs to be replaced. Premium Intraocular Lenses restore patients’ vision and make it possible to focus – literally and figuratively – on the important things in life. Patients who undergo refractive cataract surgery can see near, far and everything in between. SEE is pleased to be a leading provider of this advanced treatment for cataracts.In recent years, intraocular lens technology has dramatically improved. The lenses used by SEE make it possible for many patients to completely do away with eye glasses. There are currently four types of FDA-approved implant lenses on the market, and SEE offers them all. With a broader range of choices, we are able to successfully address each patient’s specific condition. Multifocal lenses can improve your full range of vision so you can see clearly – close up as well as far away.
Not long ago, replacement lenses only restored distance vision. Most patients still needed reading glasses for close-up work. With new Premium Intraocular Lenses, however, most patients find they can read a book, work on the computer, drive a car (in daylight as well as at night), play golf or tennis, and just about everything else – without the aid of eye glasses!
There are many types of lenses available.
Our team works with patients to ensure that your replacement lens (or lenses) will restore your vision to a level that allows you to engage in the activities that are most important to you. Medicare and private insurance covers the cost of cataract surgery and a portion of the premium intraocular lenses. If you are a candidate for cataract surgery and considering Premium Intraocular Lenses, we will be happy to discuss the out-of-pocket costs you can expect. Surgeries are performed on an outpatient basis and most patients are able to resume routine activities within a few days of the procedure.
