Featured Procedures

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!


I was referred to Dr. Gupta first by the Lions Club, then by the Metrolina Association for the Blind to have my very bad cataracts treated.     - Rachel W.
