Welcome To South Palm Eye

Options For Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery has evolved a great deal over the last 25-30 years. It is the most frequently performed surgery in the U.S. with approximately 3 million surgeries per year, and has one of the highest safety profiles of any surgery. Today, almost all cataract surgery is performed in an outpatient setting involving small incision, no-stitch techniques.

Once you’ve made the decision to have surgery, there are several options to choose from:

TYPE OF IMPLANT

Today, there are several different options which are available when it comes to what type of implant you want.  There are many factors which go into choosing the right option.  At South Palm Eye Associates, we do extensive preoperative measurements as well as getting to know the needs and desires of each individual patient.  Every patient and every eye is unique and not every option is right for every patient.  If you’ve had previous eye surgery, pre-existing ocular pathology, large amounts of astigmatism, as well as other factors, this is all taken into account in recommending which lens is best for you.  

Multifocal lenses such as the Tecnis multifocal, the Symfony and the Crystalens implants offer the patient the ability to see distance, intermediate and near without glasses, most if not all of the time.

Toric lens are for patients with a larger than normal amount of astigmatism.  By assessing the preoperative astigmatism, the correct astigmatism power is calculated and after implanting the lens is simply dialed into the proper position.

Both the doctor and the gals who work with him and his patients, are genuine, caring, personable, knowledgeable, professional in every way. The front desk staff is warm and friendly. They take a personal interest in the patient as a whole person, not just a set of eyes. It’s always a positive experience visiting this office.

I had a great experience, staff was friendly, courteous and all was very prompt. A lot of places make you wait no matter what time you’re scheduled for and here they were true to appointment time. Doctor Oppenheimer was really great at explaining everything going on, I saw her back in 2014 and this is what brought me back to South Palm Eye Associates. Thank you for the great experience!
