During refractive cataract surgery, our surgeon will remove the cloudy lens in your eye, and replace it with an artificial lens. This is done using a very small incision that does not require a suture for closure, nor a bandage for healing. The entire length of the cataract surgery is less than 30 minutes. Our surgeon will perform the surgery while the patient is under local anesthesia. So after surgery, the patient will feel well and alert, with no uncomfortable side effects from general anesthesia. All of our doctors are board-certified and fellowship-trained in refractive cataract surgery in Brooklyn. You can feel assured knowing that when you come to our practice for cataract surgery, you are being operated on by one of the finest eye surgeons available. After surgery is completed, if a monofocal lens is inserted, you will experience very good distance vision. However, you may still require bifocals for reading. Newer lenses are available which offer many different and improved vision options. Our doctors will be happy to discuss these new developments with you.
