Our ophthalmologist, Dr. Sohmer, has performed thousands of cataract surgeries and utilizes the latest techniques. Cataract surgery involves removing the natural crystalline lens and replacing it with an artificial intraocular lens. Dr. Sohmer is certified in the Femtosecond laser and technology. For patients who are candidates for laser assisted cataract surgery, this technology allows many key steps of cataract surgery that used to be performed with the handheld instruments to be done with the precision of using a laser.
If a comprehensive eye exam indicates that cataract surgery is needed, a consultation will be scheduled. This consultation allows for preoperative measurements of the eye(s), patient instruction on preoperative procedures, patient education and time for questions and answers with the surgeon and surgical coordinators.
