Take Control of Your Cataract Surgery

Your Guide to Modern Cataract Surgery  

From the Author:

You are here because your vision is important to you, and you have decisions to make.

With the right information, you can maximize the happiness that you achieve through cataract surgery.  You can prevent mistakes that are hard to undo.  You can avoid spending money unnecessarily; or you can assure yourself that you are spending your money wisely.  


You will experience the consequences of your choices every waking moment for the rest of your life.  But how can you know what your choices are?   How do you even know what questions to ask?  

Since entering private practice in 1997, I have performed approximately 10,000 cataract surgical cases. I interviewed every patient preoperatively so I could understand what they wanted, and followed every patient postoperatively so that I could understand what they learned in the process.  

This website will empower you.   You will learn the facts and experience the simulations you need to understand the blessings and limits of current technology.  But it's not just about the technology.  This website will teach you to look at yourself so that you can match the available technology to your needs, goals, and personality.  

Inside this website you are free from the influence of marketers and industry.  There are no external links inside this site.   I have no direct or indirect financial interest in the devices or concepts discussed inside.  Names of companies and devices are occasionally included when knowing them might be of interest to you.
