Exactly what is Dr. Jay doing during cataract surgery?

Cataract Surgery Saukville WI | Mequon WIDr. Jay makes a tiny incision in the eye towards your ear that is  about 2.4 mm in size. They then break up your natural lens with a tiny sound wave probe and gently vacuum out the cataract. All the instruments are very small and are viewed through a microscope. Once the lens has been removed, it is replaced with a tiny implant. If we did not use an implant, you would need thick glasses or contact lenses to see, as was done 20 years ago.

Cataract Surgery Saukville WI | Mequon WIAs noted above, we now have the choice of placing an implant to maximize your distance vision only or one to allow both near and distance vision (Multi-focal implants) without glasses after surgery. We also have Toric implants to compensate for your astigmatism.
