Congratulations and welcome.  Just by being here you have taken the first step towards customizing your vision and maximizing your happiness with cataract surgery. 

In the past, cataract surgery was just like many other surgeries, where the same surgery was provided for all patients. 


That has all changed in the past decade.   In cooperation with your surgeon, you can design how your eye sees and what it does best.  But you have to know how to identify and articulate your priorities.  You have to make decisions based upon an understanding of yourself, your eyes, and the technology available.    

This website will show you how to do this.  Written in nontechnical language, the information inside this site is drawn from my experience as a cataract surgeon. Since entering private practice in 1997, I have performed approximately 10,000 cataract surgical cases.  I interviewed every patient preoperatively and followed every patient postoperatively.  

I will teach you what my patients taught me.  For example, I will show you how your personality and lifestyle can affect the decisions you make.  I will help you understand the technologies that are available to you.  The information inside will hep you confidently make important decisions about your cataract surgery in cooperation with your surgical team.


This site has no sponsors.  There are no corporate external links inside this website. I have no financial interest in any of the devices, procedures, or concepts discussed inside. Names of companies and products occur only when knowing them might be helpful to you.   

Again, congratulations for taking the first step towards designing your vision.  There is no particular order to view this site. Start with a topic of interest to you and go from there! If you are not sure where to start, click here to begin with Astigmatism.
