A cataract is a progressive clouding of the natural lens in your eye. If symptoms of cataracts are mild, a change in glasses may be all that is necessary. However, if cataracts are causing symptoms that interfere with daily activities, surgery may be considered. People with advanced cataracts often say they feel as if they're looking through a light fog or a piece of waxed paper.

The surgery is done under a microscope using tiny instruments the size of a pen tip. The eye is numbed with anesthetic drops. A very small incision is created in the cornea and highly advanced ultrasound device is used to break the cataract up and remove it in tiny pieces.

Cataract surgeons at the Filutowski Cataract & LASIK Institute use bladeless and stitchless technology to give you clearer vision. Our advanced techniques to cataract surgery provide a comfortable experience with the possibility of eliminating your need for glasses.

If you are noticing a decrease in your vision, cataracts may be the cause. Visit any one of our three Central Florida locations for an eye exam to determine if cataracts are causing your vision loss. Cataract surgery may be an excellent solution for you.

We use anesthetic eye drops to alleviate pain during the cataract removal. By not using needle injections around the eye, we eliminate the risk of damaging the optic nerve or the eye itself. Using eye drops allows our patients to continue taking blood thinners before their cataract surgery, and allows for quick visual recovery.

Although most people have a good level of clear vision following their cataract surgery, the thought of an operation on your eye may be worrying. 

Your lens sits just behind your iris, the coloured part of your eye. Normally your lens is clear and helps to focus the light entering your eye. Developing cataracts will cause your sight to become cloudy and misty.

Cataracts can be removed by surgery. Cataract surgery removes your cloudy lens and replaces it with an artificial lens. This lens is known as an intra ocular lens – often shortened to IOL. The artificial lens is made of plastic or silicone, and will not need to be changed for the rest of your life.

Surgery for cataracts involves removing the clouded lens of the eye (the cataract). The lens can be replaced with an artificial lens called an intraocular lens implant (IOL). Or, if an IOL cannot be used for any reason, it will be left out and contact lenses or, in rare cases, eyeglasses can compensate for its absence. Most people will get an IOL during surgery.

Before surgery, ask your doctor about what types of IOLs can go in your eye . Or, if you will not be getting an IOL, find out why, and ask about the pros and cons of contact lenses or eyeglasses .

For most adults, surgery is only needed when vision loss caused by a cataract affects your quality of life. The goals of surgery in adults who have cataracts include:
