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, most of our cataract surgery is now being performed at the Grand View Health Harleysville Outpatient Center, which opened in 2018 with the most advanced cataract and microsurgical equipment. There are times when your cataract surgery may need to be done at Grand View Health Hospital. Either way, the procedure is done under local anesthesia with no hospital stay necessary. 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 our 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


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.


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.

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.

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!

Microinvasive Glaucoma Surgical Procedure

These procedures help to increase fluid drainage in the eye, which in turn, helps reduce eye pressure and reduce the dependency on the routine eye drop regiment.
