Cataract & Glaucoma Procedures

Cataract Surgeries & Procedures

Cataract development is a normal process of aging, but cataracts can also develop from eye injuries, certain diseases, or medications. At Bucks-Mont Eye Associates, cataract surgery is performed in an outpatient setting at Grand View Health, using the most advanced cataract and microsurgical equipment under local anesthesia with no hospital stay. Cataract surgery is one of the most successful procedures performed in the United States today.

Intraocular Lenses for Cataract Surgery

Intraocular lenses for cataract surgery is when the patient’s cloudy lens is removed and an intraocular lens is implanted in its place, restoring clear vision. At Bucks-Mont Eye Associates, the surgeons are certified to provide lifestyle options for your cataract surgery. Our surgeons will assist in the determining if you are a good candidate for one of these advanced lenses, according to your specific lifestyle.

Cataract Procedure Options

Our surgeons strive to offer the most advanced surgical options to provide our patients with the best visual results. There are many options available including some advanced technology lens implants that provide less dependence on eyeglasses. Cataract surgery can be customized to out patients specific visual needs.

Dropless™ Cataract Surgery


Bucks-Mont Eye Associates now offers Dropless™ cataract surgery. Most patients are relieved of the burden and cost of post-operative eye drops with this important advancement in cataract surgery.

Monofocal IOLs


Traditional Monofocal IOLs will improve distance vision and is a great choice for cataract patients. While there will be a distinct improvement in vision, patients may still require eyeglasses after surgery for near vision or to correct any astigmatism. This type of IOL is frequently used and is covered by most insurances minus any co-pays or deductibles.

Lifestyle Lenses


Advanced technology is a great option for patients who want to rely less on eyeglasses. Ask us about these different lens options at your cataract evaluation. Our doctors and staff will be glad to explain the different lens types to help you make the correct choice for your lifestyle

Symfony

The Symfony is the latest technology approved by the FDA and offers an extended range of vision. This lens will address distance, intermediate and near vision needs for continuous, full range of high-quality vision.

There is still a likelihood of people who need glasses for very fine print, but it should allow you to spend most of your day without glasses.

The Symfony lens is available in both a Non-Toric and a Toric version for patients with astigmatism.

Crystalens

The Crystalens is the only FDA approved accommodating intraocular lens in the US. The lens simulates the natural lens to provide distance, intermediate, and near vision needs.

There is still a likelihood of people who need glasses for very fine print, but it should allow you to spend most of your day without glasses.

Toric

Toric lenses help reduce the need for distance glasses following a cataract surgery procedure. Selecting a toric lens will correct a preexisting astigmatism, but individuals will still require glasses for most near tasks.

Trulign

The Trulign works similarly to how the Crystalens works by providing natural movement and enables you to have clearer distance and intermediate sight. The added benefit is that it corrects the patient’s preexisting astigmatism.

YAG Capsulotomy


A common occurrence after cataract surgery is scar tissue developing behind the intraocular lens. This is readily corrected right in our office with YAG Laser Capsulotomy, not requiring an operating room.

Choosing Your Best Option for Cataract Surgery

Glaucoma Procedures

When medical treatments fail to adequately lower intraocular pressure, surgical intervention may be necessary.

Selective Laser Trabeculectomy

This procedure is often performed for Glaucoma patients and was previously done in an outpatient setting but now conveniently done right in our office!

I-Stent Procedure

I-Stent surgery is a recently approved surgery for cataract patients that suffer from glaucoma as well. We proudly offer it as a specialty treatment in conjunction with cataract surgery.

This procedure is a small implant that helps increase fluid drainage in the eye, which in turn, helps reduce eye pressure and reduces the dependency on the routine eye drop regiment.
