Have you been told you are a candidate for cataract surgery? Cataract surgery is a relatively “patient friendly” type of surgery. The technology of cataract surgery is truly amazing. There are many technological advances that have enabled skilled cataract surgeons, like Dr. Mark Whitten, to perform cataract surgery through very tiny incisions requiring only eye drops, rather than needles or injections for anesthesia and without the need for stitches or a patch after the surgery. This allows patients to have a very quick visual recovery.
Today, Whitten Laser Eye also offers patients the newer Premium Lens Implants, which help patients minimize or possibly even eliminate their need for eyeglasses, reading glasses, bifocals or trifocals after cataract surgery. Patients are now experiencing vision better than they ever had before their surgery!
The single most important decision you can make regarding cataract surgery is your choice of surgeon. With over 30 years performing world-class eye surgery, Dr. Whitten offers you the kind of experience that you can trust.
And ask around. Get recommendations from people you know. Ask your friends, family and neighbors. Chances are that one or two surgeon names will be mentioned more than others. Find out what they liked and didn’t like. Finding a surgeon that you trust AND feel completely comfortable with is very important.
But there is no substitute for personal interaction and questions. Scheduling an appointment is easy, and is the first step toward a restored sense of safety, independence and crisp, clear vision.
