Treatment for cataracts involves surgery. The ophthalmologists at American Eye Institute will remove the cloudy lens and replace it with a clear implant. We offer the most advanced, premium implants for patients suffering from cataracts. This includes both and presbyopia and astigmatism-correcting intraocular lenses (IOLs) that can restore a full range of vision and often eliminate the need for eyeglasses. We offer an exciting, innovative, and new lens called Tecnis Symfony lens. This is the first IOL lens in the United States that provides an extended range of focus, allowing a fuller range of high-quality vision.
