Cataract Surgery

A safe, effective way to restore your vision

Cataracts, or the clouding of the lens inside the eye, are the leading cause of vision loss in adults over age 55. With cataracts, everyday activities like reading, driving and working at the computer become increasingly difficult.

Once a cataract has formed, the most effective way to restore vision is to remove the cloudy cataract and replace it with a lens implant.

Fortunately, cataract surgery is one of the safest and most effective surgeries available today.

Amazingly, today’s replacement lenses may even allow you to see better than you have in years!

Two types of replacement lenses

Monofocal lenses correct vision at one part of the visual range, usually at a distance.  Patients must then rely on reading glasses to correct vision up close.

Multifocal lenses are specially designed to correct a full range of vision: Near, far, and everywhere in between. No more glasses—except sunglasses!

You may be a candidate for AcrySof ReSTOR®, Tecnis® or Toric® intraocular replacement lenses. Your Seidenberg Protzko doctor will help you decide which lens is right for you.

Laser cataract surgery

Seidenberg Protzko Eye Associates was the first practice in Maryland to offer state-of-the-art laser cataract surgery with the Abbott Medical Optics Catalys Precision Laser System. Catalys helps ensure a more precise treatment and a speedier recovery.
