When cataracts begin to interfere with your vision, surgery is a common treatment with excellent outcomes. The procedure is quick and painless, and involves replacing the clouded lens that is being obstructed by the cataract with a new, artificial lens implant.
At MedStar Health, we offer premium solutions for patients who are looking for special lens implants that offer enhanced features over standard implants.
What options are available with premium cataract surgery?
Astigmatism Correcting Implants
This option is for anyone with an existing degree of astigmatism, where vision blurs in both near and far ranges.
These lenses allow patients to see both distance and near after surgery. You may select this option over standard implants if you do not want to be dependent on reading glasses after undergoing cataract surgery.
How do I know if I am a candidate for premium cataract surgery?
Our experienced cataract surgeons at any MedStar Health Ophthalmology location can evaluate you to see if you are a candidate for premium cataract surgery. The team will discuss your options, as well as any additional out of pocket costs that are not covered by insurance.
