At our practice, New York Cornea Consultants, we are able to provide patients with cataract surgery in Queens which has them seeing clearly once again.
At our ophthalmology practice, our expert and highly skilled eye doctor is Dr. Michael Ehrenhaus. Dr. Ehrenhaus, or “Dr. Mike” as called by his patients, is highly trained in complicated microsurgical cataract surgery. Whether you have an involved eye surgery problem involving cataracts and some other eye disease, or simply need regular cataract laser eye surgery, our highly skilled ophthalmologist will be able to help you with out-patient cataract surgery in Queens. Dr. Ehrenhaus can treat both complex and routine cases of cataract problems while using the latest microsurgical phacoemulsification technology. This technology involves a tiny incision in the eye which is created by a laser during cataract surgery in Queens.
Once this tiny slit is made with a laser, the damaged natural lens is broken up using sound waves. The old lenses is then suctioned out of the eye through this tiny incision. A new, clear, man-made lenses is inserted through this same incision. The new lens can either give you excellent distance vision, or can be a multifocal lens which will provide you with excellent vision at various distances. There are no stitches that are needed after the surgery; the tiny incision will quickly heal by itself. You will only need to wear a protective cover over your eye while you sleep to make sure that you do not inadvertently poke or put pressure on your eye during the first day or so. Most cataracts, if left untreated will eventually go on to cause total blindness. The good news is that cataract laser surgery is the most commonly performed eye surgery today. It is very safe and highly effective in solving a patient’s cataract problems. For an appointment to meet with our ophthalmologist regarding cataract surgery in Queens, contact us today.
