Cataract surgery involves removing the cloudy lens from the eye and replacing it with a new artificial lens implant. With this lens implant, or IOL, a patient’s need for glasses can usually be reduced or even eliminated after surgery. Calculation of the appropriate lens strength depends on various measurements of the eye, especially the length of the eye and the curvature of the cornea. It is critical to have these measurements as accurate as possible.
At Strong Eye Care, we have recently upgraded to the new Carl Zeiss IOL Master. This device uses a light beam to obtain the required eye measurements for surgery planning. Compared to previous technology, the IOL Master allows greater accuracy and patient comfort. This equipment investment is just part of our commitment to deliver excellent care.
