Cataract surgery patients also have access to the latest technology. During pre-operative testing ophthalmic biometry by LenStar® is performed to precisely calculate the implant required. Another recent addition was the Barrett Toric Planning Software which increases the accuracy of Advanced Toric IOLs and Multifocal IOLs. Advanced Technology Cataract Surgery™ can include premium lens implants that help reduce your dependence on glasses after your procedure. Also, we added the Nidek OPD Scan 3® wavefront analyzer and iVUE® OCT tomographer to further evaluate the health of your eyes.

Technology drives everything about our practice. From using our website and videos to educate patients to our EMR, we use available technology to give patients the best care possible.
We are able to achieve tailored and targeted surgical results using the clinical patient data collected from our various advanced technology diagnostic devices. Technology allows us to perform Constant Comparative Analysis on testing results, observe any discrete variations, and utilize “forecasting software” to predict the best outcomes. Our software takes each patient’s results and customizes outcomes to help deliver even more accurate results for future patients. These tailored results allow patients to have more choices in their advanced cataract surgery, glaucoma implants and various laser treatments including iLasik.
