Cataract Treatment

Cataract Treatment at South Nassau

For your convenience and care, we’ve created South Nassau’s Cataract Surgery Center of Excellence. Here, we specialize in intraocular lens implants, where we insert a new lens when we remove the cataract. These lenses not only protect the eye, they can also correct astigmatism and reading vision. So you can enjoy better vision and have greater independence from eyeglasses and contact lenses.

Our expertise in cataract care includes:

  • Advanced microsurgical techniques with a low rate of complications
  • High patient satisfaction
  • Removal of cataract with ultrasound (phacoemulsification), requiring less than 3mm incision
  • Intraocular lenses to correct astigmatism and reading vision
  • Rapid visual rehabilitation

Learn About Cataracts

A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. Symptoms might include blurred vision, problems with glare, difficulty with reading, fading of colors and poor night vision.

During the early stages of a cataract, you might find that a change in eyeglass prescription improves vision. But when symptoms start to interfere with your ability to perform daily visual tasks, consider meeting with the eye experts at South Nassau Communities Hospital. We offer advanced surgeries to remove the cataract and restore your vision.
