If you believe you have developed a cataract, make an appointment with Dr. Ginsberg for a complete and personalized evaluation. No referral is typically required.
A thorough eye exam will determine whether you have cataracts. Your diagnosis will be confirmed and you will be thoroughly educated about your options.
Modern cataract surgery is performed using ultrasound energy. For many years, surgeons have replaced the eye’s old, cloudy or discoloured lens with a new, clear acrylic or silicone intraocular lens (IOL). The most common form of IOLs for cataract surgery are monofocal, designed to correct vision at one distance. However, Dr. Ginsberg may offer you the option of one of our Maxximum Technology Cataract Surgery options. With new advancements in refractive cataract surgery and premium intraocular lenses combined with the latest diagnostic technology, many cataract patients can have better vision after MTCS than they had before they developed a cataract.
This procedure is routinely and safely performed by Dr. Ginsberg at our outpatient surgery facility located closest to you. Most visits to the surgery facility only last a couple hours and then the patient returns home with a short clinic followup visit the next day.
Cataract surgery is usually recommended when people feel their quality of life is affected and their ability to perform normal activities (driving, reading or sports) is compromised. When cataract symptoms begin, you may be able to cope temporarily with a new prescription for your glasses, stronger bifocals, magnification, appropriate lighting or other visual aids.
When you feel that your blurred vision interferes with your day-to-day life, surgical remedies should be considered.
MTCS involves a complete evaluation of the patient’s eyes and cataract type. A thorough evaluation and discussion of the patient’s lifestyle and end goals following cataract surgery is done. We will want to know what you would like your eyes to be able to do once the surgery is complete. How much freedom from spectacles or contact lenses do you desire? Every person is different and every situation is different. We will help guide you to the right outcome for you.
This is done through the use of the most state of the art diagnostic equipment in clinic. A complete eye exam is done by Dr. Ginsberg and then followed by a set of diagnostic scans of the entire eye to decide which IOL is appropriate for your eyes and will allow you to achieve your final visual goals. Dr. Ginsberg will then sit down and explain what the best options are for you and answer any questions you might have.
Dr. Ginsberg has extensive experience with all intraocular lenses available in the United States and some not available here yet. This allows him to combine surgical skills and experience with his knowledge of your desires to match the appropriate lens with your eye.
Dr. Ginsberg is committed to providing thorough education for patients seeking treatment for their cataracts and to determining the most effective treatment plan for each patient on an individual basis. All options are discussed including Maxximum Technology Cataract Surgery (MTCS). No evaluation is complete without time for the patient and family to ask the doctor and staff questions.
