Living with cataracts can affect
how you see both light and color.
A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens inside the eye. From light halos to color dullness, undetected cataracts can often affect the way we see light, color and life in general. Often the symptoms go undetected or are thought of as an unavoidable part of the aging process. But cataracts can also develop due to trauma, exposure to ultraviolet radiation or the use of certain medications.
Treatments for cataracts may vary, so we’ll work together to determine what’s best, and what will help you see better.
We’re proud to have a Femtosecond Laser on-site, so we don’t have to wait for equipment and you don’t have to wait to be seen. We believe in innovation, and are committed to making this technology available to you when you visit Ludwick Eye Center.
We own our very own ultrafast Femtosecond Laser, which maintains the quality you’re used to while shortening surgery time and gets you out on time.
We’re always committed to treating your eyes to the latest in premium lenses.
When treating your cataract, there are options available. The right treatment plan will be customized based on the results of your consultation and these treatment options.
This alternate provides a lower-risk solution, innovative approach by using blade-free Femtosecond Laser technology to treat your cataracts with increased precision. You’ll feel better faster and see better than you saw before. We make surgery easy for you and get you back on a path to better sight and an even brighter future as quickly as possible.
The Light Adjustable Lens (LAL) is a revolutionary intraocular lens that allows the power of the lens to be adjusted after surgical implantation. The newest model of the LAL, originally approved by the FDA in 2017, is now available. We continue to embrace new and innovative technology to support you and your patients.
The LAL contains photosensitive macromers embedded in the matrix of the lens and upon exposure of the lens to a specially designed ultraviolet (UV) light source following surgery the macromeres polymerize and change the shape and power of the lens. Uncorrected acuity of 20/25 or better can be achieved in over 90% of patients! The lens is the perfect option for patients who want the highest degree of precision in post-operative refractive outcomes and for post refractive surgery patients where IOL calculations with traditional lens implants have been imperfect. Once implanted the lens can be adjusted up to 3.0D of cylinder and 2.0 D of sphere. While multifocal adjustments are not today approved, mini-monovision corrections can be reliably achieved. Adjustments are made about 3 weeks following surgery typically in two sessions followed by a “lock in” session once the desired refractive outcome is achieved.
Some important details:
Good candidates are patients who desire the highest degree of precision in postoperative refractive outcomes and post refractive surgery patients. The patient must be able to dilate to 7mm and attend adjustment sessions. The following patients are not good candidates:
The lens contains a UV light absorbing coating on the anterior surface to minimize the effect of ambient UV light on the lens until the final lock in session. Patients are required to wear provided UV blocking sunglasses to further protect the lens until lock in. The exposure of the lens to other UV light sources could potentially lead to uncontrolled refractive changes.

Whether you’re farsighted or nearsighted or somewhere in between, we replace your cataract with a premium, customized intraocular lens (IOL) that specifically works for you.
Once the new lens is inserted, it’s possible you might not need to rely on your glasses or contact lenses as much to see what your future holds. We’ll work together to get you seeing better and develop a treatment plan that fits your lifestyle, and can even correct your astigmatism.
