Laser Cataract Surgery

Schedule an Appointment

Experience Better Vision

Cataracts are a completely normal part of aging, and occur when the normally clear lens in your eye becomes opaque with time. Although it’s normal, it doesn’t mean you have to live with the symptoms. 

If you have cataracts, it can result in loss of sight and even blindness. You may experience symptoms such as cloudy vision, dulled color perception, or trouble doing daily tasks like reading or writing. 

At Center For Sight, our highly-skilled medical team has performed thousands of life-changing cataract procedures and is committed to helping every patient that walks through our doors.

What Is Laser Cataract Surgery?

For over 30 years, the medical team at Center For Sight has helped set the standard in cataract and lens replacement surgery and was among the first in the nation to perform Laser Cataract Surgery with the LENSAR femtosecond laser. With constant investment in training and technology, we stay at the forefront of laser cataract surgery.

Laser cataract surgery is a precise and accurate procedure that involves removing your affected lens and replacing it with an artificial intraocular lens, known as an IOL. To perform laser cataract surgery, we use the LENSAR femtosecond laser and the most advanced IOL technology–the Johnson & Johnson TECNIS Synergy™ intraocular lens (IOL) for cataract treatment.

How We Treat Cataracts

At Center For Sight, we offer 3 vision options: advanced, custom, or basic vision. During a consultation, your surgeon will assess your individual needs to see which vision option, if any, is best for you. Then, they may use a combination of these treatments and lens implants to treat your cataracts. 

Advanced Vision

Advanced vision will offer you minimal if any, dependence on eyeglasses for all distance vision. It involves:

  • Laser cataract surgery
  • Advanced implant
  • Astigmatism treatment
  • Corneal topography
  • LASIK enhancement (if necessary)

Custom vision provides improved distance vision, but you will still require eyeglasses for close-up tasks. This procedure involves:

  • Laser cataract surgery
  • Astigmatism treatment
  • Shape matched implant
  • Corneal topography
  • LASIK enhancement (if necessary)

Basic+ vision will help provide clearer vision, but you will still require eyeglasses after surgery. It involves:

  • Manual cataract surgery
  • Corneal topography
  • Shape matched implant

Center For Sight now offers the Light Adjustable Lens, a new addition to our premium lens technology. The Light Adjustable Lens allows your surgeon to continue customizing your vision after your cataract surgery, allowing your eyes time to heal and adjust before locking in your personal best vision. This post-surgical adjustment is performed in the office through a series of brief, painless light treatment procedures. Typically reserved for patients who have had previous laser or corneal surgery, this technology is available in select markets. Ask your surgeon if the Light Adjustable Lens is right for you.

Regain Clear Vision

With nationally recognized doctors, endless investment in training, and the most up-to-date technology, our surgeons can help you see clearly once again. 

Book a consultation today to take the next step towards a customized cataract procedure.

Clear Lens Enhancement (CLE)

If you’re over 50 and you wish to see clearly without glasses or contacts, clear lens enhancement (CLE) might be the right approach for you. Similar to cataract removal surgery, clear lens enhancement is a procedure in which a customized intraocular lens is placed in the eye to correct nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism and presbyopia. This lens will remain in your eye for the rest of your life. This procedure also eliminates the need for cataract eye surgery in the future, a common result of aging.


Clear lens enhancement is a remarkably successful cataract eye surgery that leaves patients with sharp vision and a more permanent ability to see and live with a much lower dependence on glasses or contacts. In fact, of our patients at Center For Sight who undergo a clear lens enhancement procedure, 95% no longer need corrective lenses. Speak with your doctor to determine if clear lens enhancement is right for you.

RxSight™ Light Adjustable Lens

Center For Sight now offers the Light Adjustable Lens, a new addition to our premium lens technology. The Light Adjustable Lens allows your surgeon to continue customizing your vision after your cataract surgery, allowing your eyes time to heal and adjust before locking in your personal best vision. This post-surgical adjustment is performed in the office through a series of brief, painless light treatment procedures. Typically reserved for patients who have had previous laser or corneal surgery, this technology is available in select markets. Ask your surgeon if the Light Adjustable Lens is right for you.

Why choose the Light Adjustable Lens?

With the Light Adjustable Lens, you will have the unique opportunity to adjust and preview your vision until it meets your personal desires and lifestyle requirements. This optimization is done by your eye doctor after lens implantation through a series of light treatment procedures that take only a few minutes each session.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the Light Adjustable Lens and Light Delivery Device for patients with preexisting astigmatism of 0.75 diopters or more who are undergoing cataract surgery.

In the weeks following your surgery, you and your doctor will work together to optimize your vision using UV light treatments. During this period, you will need to wear UV-blocking glasses provided to you by your doctor. These glasses will protect your eyes from exposure to all other sources of indoor and outdoor UV light, which can cause uncontrolled changes to the Light Adjustable Lens.

The UV protective glasses must be worn during all waking hours, from the time of lens implantation until 24 hours after your last light treatment is completed. At that point, no further changes can be made to the implanted Light Adjustable Lens, and you can remove the UV protective glasses and enjoy your custom vision!
