You may even have sensitivity to sunlight. Fortunately, cataract surgery can help you to regain what you’ve lost, both in terms of your vision and your quality of life. Now, a technological breakthrough is available for use in cataract surgery. Our practice will be among the first practices in the United States to have this breakthrough technology.

Femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery offers a reproducible, noninvasive technique to replace the least predictable and most technically demanding steps of conventional cataract procedures.
During both basic and laser cataract surgery, the cataract is removed and a new lens is put in the eye. The staff and doctors of the Cleveland Eye Clinic will help to educate you about your options regarding lens options and what might work best for your eyes.
Why is this described as customized laser refractive cataract surgery?
Your eyes can be compared to snowflakes! While all human eyes share the same basic anatomical structure, every eye is just a bit different in terms of size, depth, curvature of the cornea and other key features. Which is why every eye must be carefully measured and mapped prior to cataract surgery. While these measurements have been routinely performed prior to surgery, the Catalys, OptiMedica laser uses a range of highly-advanced technologies – including integrated optical coherence tomography (OCT) – to capture incredibly precise, high resolution images of your eyes.
These images – and the measurements and data they provide – are then used to plan and perform a surgery to exacting specifications not attainable with traditional surgery.
Choosing Your Lens Implant
During both traditional cataract surgery and femtosecond bladeless refractive cataract surgery the cataract is removed and a new lens is required. You will need to understand what your lens implant options. Fortunately, premium lens implant technology is now available to help you see without glasses at near, far and intermediate distances.
