By understanding more about cataract surgery and lens implants, we are hopeful that patients will not allow vision loss from a cataract to interfere with their daily activities, driving, mobility and overall quality of life,” commented Marc Michelson, M.D., aCorneal Specialist, Cataract & Refractive Surgeon. “We also see a real need for patients with cataracts to have access to the latest information on lens implants we can use to correct both astigmatism and near vision focusing problems,” explained Corneal Specialist, Cataract & Refractive SurgeonTyler Hall, M.D.

“We know that patients like to use the web to learn about the different types of LASIK surgery such as bladeless LASIK,” commented Dr. Michelson. “We also know is that it is important for them have information about the corneal diseases, conditions and problems that might preclude them from being good LASIK candidates-so we provide this on our new web site,” explained Dr. Hall. “We encourage patients to read and learn as much as they can on the web by visiting our new site –but we also strongly encourage them to come in and have a free consultation so we can help determine whether they are good candidates and whether LASIK is indeed a good vision correction option for them,” further explained Dr. Hall.
