Featured Procedures

Femto Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery: Femto Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery, or FLACS, replaces many of the steps during cataract surgery that require a blade and softens the cataract, allowing for an easier and smoother removal. In addition, the laser corrects mild astigmatism by relaxing the cornea at a precise depth, length, and orientation in a more precise and effective manner compared to manual, hand-made incisions. It can also improve the quality of vision by reducing some visual aberrations, it expands the visual range of astigmatism-correcting lens implants, and it may enhance the quality and range of near vision in extended range lens implants.

CE/IOL or cataract extraction and Intraocular lens placement: My technique usually involves topical anesthesia with 10-minute microsurgery. I use various lenses, including monofocal, toric, and multifocal lenses, based on patient expectations. Recovery and outcomes are excellent. There is nothing more satisfying in my practice than the delight patients express after surgery and seeing their world much better!
