What are Cataracts?

A cataract is clouding of the eye’s natural lens, which contributes to blurred, hazy and foggy vision. Located behind the iris and pupil; cataracts develop slowly as a natural process of aging. As you cataracts progress you may consider cataract surgery as a means to regain your lost visual clarity.

Extended Range Of Vision And Multifocal Intraocular Lenses (IOLs)

Extended range of vision intraocular lenses can result in great distance and near vision without glasses following cataract surgery. These lenses provide an excellent range vision to suit most needs. With a traditional multifocal lens (IOL) you will notice some starbursts and halos around street lights and headlights. This has been dramatically reduced by the new generation of extended range of vision lenses. These starbursts and halos usually diminish with time and is much less with current extended range of vision lenses compared with older multifocal intraocular lens designs.

EyeCare Associates of South Tulsa has had great success with the Panoptix intraocular lens. This lens provides an excellent range of vision, producing less starbursts around lights at night time than other multifocal lens designs.

Dropless Cataract Surgery

Dropless Cataract Surgery is an advanced procedure which offers our patients the option of having cataract surgery performed with the medication being placed directly into the eye during surgery. This eliminates the need to take drops (or significantly less drops) after surgery.   View Video

Traditional cataract surgery requires the patient to use multiple eye drops before and after surgery, often up to four times a day for a month or more. In most cases, Dropless Surgery eliminates the need to apply drops in patients who are having cataract surgery. Besides the convenience, eliminating post-op drops can help lower the risk of infection and also save the patient between $200 to $400! EyeCare Associates of South Tulsa is one of the only practices providing Dropless cataract surgery in Oklahoma, and the results have been GREAT!
