Cataract Surgery

+ More
  • Cataracts are cloudy patches in the lens of the eye that are common as a result of aging. Cataract removal surgery is recommended for patients who experience impairment to vision and are sensitive to light as a result of the cataract. The surgery involves the removal of the natural lens and it is most commonly replaced with a synthetic lens.

  • 2 - 3 days

    Patients can usually fly soon after cataract surgery, but should take precautions to avoid dryness in the eye.

  • 1 - 2 weeks

    The ophthalmologist may want to arrange a follow up appointment a few days after the procedure, but you can discuss with them if you need to travel earlier.

    I had lasik done here around 7 years ago. I had miopía and astigmatism. I was 21 and the possibility of me losing my vision was very high by the time I was thirty. Im 27 now and still see as good as the day I had surgery Dr. Chayet is the definition of professionalism. And his staff is up to par. Every time I go in for a check up the English speaking staff are always happy to see me, They're like my favorite tias i love seeing them. The cafe 20/20 is a good getaway from the waiting room. Their coffees and house made lunches are well prepared.

    If you guys come here, be prepared to be seated for at least one hour . Terrible experience , specially if the patien is a kid. Mine was treated very rude , and even poked with a pen because he did not answer what the " first filter " ladie was expecting , and before they make you sit again, and again make you wait. Then, they finally take you to the " medical office and make you wait there again! Awful organization !! Worst private service I've had in years!
    Should have policies like airplanes , " if not seen after 20 minutes of waiting " a for free! For sure, nobody would be late!!!!
