Premier Cataract Surgery

Our surgeons appreciate that each patient has unique concerns and goals when it comes to their eye health and cataract surgery. That is why we treat each visit as an opportunity for open discussion where questions can be answered and understanding can occur. This allows us to customize a plan to meet your individual needs and desires.

Cataract surgery is the most commonly performed operation in the United States. Modern cataract surgery involves the removal of the cataract or cloudy natural lens from within the eye and the implantation of an artificial lens. The surgery usually takes between fifteen to twenty minutes and can be done while patients are awake with only light sedation.

We utilize the most advanced surgical techniques and equipment supported by the latest research in the field of ophthalmology. We also value your time and money. This is why the majority of our surgeries are performed in our state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center with the goal of getting you home and healing faster.
