Cataract Surgeons & Lens Implants-Role as Ophthalmic Consultants

“Refractive Cataract Surgeons serve as ophthalmic consultants for many patients seeking to not simply have their cataracts removed, but to do so with a result that essentially leaves them “glasses free”, commented Corneal Specialist, Refractive & Cataract Surgeon Leslie Doctor, M.D. who serves as an ophthalmic consultant in Connecticut for Fairfield County patients.

“Toric lens implants for cataract surgery help us get patients to their goal of seeing at a distance without glasses after a cataract is removed,” added New Jersey Corneal Specialist, Refractive & Cataract Surgeon Joel Confino, M.D. of The Eye Care & Surgery Center. “And since astigmatism occurs in about one in three people and may occur in combination with nearsightedness or farsightedness, being ophthalmic consultants is as much a part of what we do as being cataract surgeons. Toric lens implants are a frequent topic of discussion with our patients.”

“Modern cataract surgery is quite sophisticated and technically demanding,” stated Ravi Shah, M.D., Corneal Specialist, Refractive & Cataract Surgeon at Eyecare Medical Group in Portland, Maine. “Now that we are using many more advanced technology implants such as toric lens implants for astigmatism, we have all found the need to expand our role as ophthalmic consultants to help patients get a better understanding of what these implants can and cannot do-setting and shaping expectations as we do for LASIK patients is as much a factor in patient satisfaction as surgical excellence.”
