Cataract is the term used to describe the opacification or the loss of clarity of the crystalline lens in the human eye.  The only treatment currently available to improve vision for people with cataracts that significantly impair vision is cataract surgery.  Dr. Whitmore has performed thousands of cataract surgeries using different techniques and regularly performs cataract surgery now using the latest techniques and equipment. This includes phaco-emulsification surgery with “no–stitch”, small-incision surgery using the latest intra-ocular lens implant technology, including bifocal and toric lens implants to correct preoperative presbyopia and astigmatism, respectively. Phaco-emulsification allows for a faster and more comfortable recovery of vision than older techniques using stitches.  

Dr. Whitmore will discuss your options and answer any questions you may have regarding cataract surgery if it is appropriate for you.
