Welcome to Miami Eye Institute where we offer state of the art laser-assisted cataract removal. Many patients who come to us, are still confused about what cataracts are and how they can be removed safely. Many patients are unaware that a cataract is a natural crystalline lens that looses its clarity over time and therefore by reducing amount of light getting into the eye, can significantly impair vision. The goal of cataract surgery is to remove the cloudy natural lens and replace it with a clear artificial lens. Laser-assisted cataract removal is an advanced method of removing cataracts, making the surgery safe, resulting in more precise outcomes. If deemed a good candidate, the surgery can be paired with insertion of an advanced technology intra-ocular lens, such as a multi-focal intraocular lens. This type of lens can significantly reduce a person’s dependency on glasses allowing for high quality vision correction that will last a lifetime!
