Cataract Surgery

We offer Cataract Surgery with Intraocular Lens Placement here at the New York Eye Surgical Center.

Make an appointment with one of our Cataract Surgeons if you suspect you may have cataracts or if you would like to discuss any other issues regarding your vision.

See our “Our Surgeons” page for our individual Cataract Surgeon’s offices contact information.

Symptoms of Cataracts may include:

  • Blurred, hazy or double vision in one or both eyes
  • Colors appearing more dull
  • Sensitivity to bright light
  • Poor night vision
  • Seeing “halos” around lights
  • Frequent changes in corrective-lens prescriptions

How Do I Prepare for Cataract Surgery?

Prior to Cataract Surgery, general Pre-Operative assessments need to be done to ensure you are a good candidate for the treatment.

In addition to the appointment(s) made with your Cataract Surgeon, you will likely need to make an appointment with your Primary Care Provider to obtain pre-operative clearance.

You may additionally need to make an appointment with your cardiologist for cardiac specific pre-operative clearance, depending on your health history.

You will not be allowed to drive yourself home after the surgery. Prepare in advance by coordinating someone who can drive you home from the surgery and help you get settled in for your recovery.

Someone will need to stay with you for 24 hours after your surgery. This is part of our patient safety policies. Prepare in advance by coordinating someone who can stay with you.
