cataract

I am 55 years old and have cataracts in both eyes although I need surgery in my right eye since it is interfering with my vision, I have prescription for bifocals as well but I can read better without them. I do not know with what type of lens to go with, I do not want to wear glasses anymore, any suggestions?

Fortunately, there are multiple opportunities available now. Standard cataract surgery will help improve your vision, but Advanced Technology Cataract Surgery will help to improve your vision and "reduce" the amount of time you will need to wear glasses after cataract surgery. There are multifocal IOLs, toric IOLs, Accomodating IOLs, and surgical monovision options available for you. Many surgeons, including myself, will include free touchups after the Advanced Technology Cataract Surgery in order to get rid of any remaining astigmatism or myopia.
