Cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed surgeries in the United States, with millions performed each year. Thanks to advances in technology, cataract surgery is now an outpatient procedure, with minimal discomfort and amazing results. With the use of premium IOLs, it’s possible you may not even need glasses following your procedure.
At Wellish Vision Institute in Las Vegas, we perform cataract surgery using phacoemulsification. What this means is that we use high-energy ultrasound waves to break up the cataract, which we then gently remove and replace with a permanent, artificial lens. In most cases, eye drop anesthesia is all that is needed to stay comfortable during the process. Following surgery, many of our patients see dramatic improvement in their vision after only a few hours.
Premier Surgeon Magazine honored Dr. Wellish as a leading innovator in the field of Cataract and Premium IOL surgery. Wellish Vision Institute is also Nationally Recognized as a Bausch and Lomb Crystalens Center of Excellence.
