Cataract Surgery

What Are Cataracts?

Cataracts are a clouding of the natural lens in your eye. As we age, our eyes mature and vision changes naturally occur. In fact, cataracts affect more than 50% of people over the age of 60.

With no medical treatment available to prevent or reverse the development of cataracts, those who suffer from this disease can look to our simple, stress-free surgery to restore their vision. Without this procedure, the natural lens continues to cloud, making daily activities a thing of the past.

In addition to cloudy vision, cataracts cause:

You may not even notice these symptoms until your cataracts have already notably developed.

List of MEI Cataract Treatment Options

Michigan Eye Institute offers state-of-the-art laser cataract surgery treatment options. Our cutting edge techniques and wide array of options ensure that our patients are given the best surgical outcome possible.

Corneal Topography Testing

MEI can perform corneal topography testing to map the surface of your cornea in detail. This helps our ophthalmologists and optometrists accurately assess your eyes for the best possible results during cataract surgery or laser vision correction.

Additionally, corneal topography can detect corneal diseases, deformities, and interior astigmatism.

Laser Cataract Surgery

Our premium laser cataract surgery technology, paired with our expert, cutting-edge techniques, provides our patients with the very best experience and outcome.

Patients can return home soon after surgery and are encouraged to rest for the remainder of the day. Every patient has a different healing rate, but many experience improved vision almost immediately after the procedure. Patients can return to their normal activities very soon following surgery.

Intraocular Lens (IOLS)

During your cataract procedure, the natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens called an Intraocular Lens (IOL).

With so many IOLs to pick from, our expert physicians and team can walk you through all of your options. We go over your goals and custom-match the IOL that best fits your lifestyle.
