Cataract Surgery
in Buffalo, NY

What are Cataracts?

Over time, the eye’s natural lens begins to degrade, causing clouded or blurry vision. This natural product of aging is called a “cataract”.

The onset of a cataract is very gradual. Objects at distances that may once have been perfectly clear will start looking hazy. When you start to notice a decrease in visual quality, a Buffalo cataract specialist can help you decide the right course of treatment to restore your vision.

Cataract surgery is nothing to fear: Advancements in the technology used in cataract surgery has advanced to the point where it’s simple, quick, and exceptionally low-risk.

Your post-cataract vision can be customized: After the removal of your cataract, your Buffalo cataract surgeon will work with you to find the artificial replacement intraocular lens (IOL) that helps achieve your visual goals.

How Cataract Surgery Works

Cataract surgery involves making a tiny entrance through the lens capsule, breaking up the cataract, and removing it from the eye. The IOL you and your surgeon choose will then be inserted and positioned in the lens capsule. The precision involved in modern cataract surgery makes recovery as smooth as possible.

Eye Surgery Options

At Buffalo Ophthalmology, we believe in the importance of approaching our procedures on a case-by-case basis and providing individualized care. Traditional cataract surgery involves using a manual tool to make a precise incision to remove the cataract, which is optimal for some patients. With automated precision, laser-assisted surgery is a better option in other cases.
Standard Multifocal and Toric IOLs

Standard, Multifocal, and Toric IOLs

The replacement lens your doctor inserts during surgery will be based on a discussion with you about your unique lifestyle and needs. A standard replacement lens restores your vision to its pre-surgery levels. Multifocal IOLs account for refractive errors like nearsightedness and farsightedness, and toric lenses offer clear vision to patients with astigmatism.
