Bond Eye Associates specializes in providing cataract surgery to patients whose quality of life has been impaired by poor vision due to cataracts. When performing cataract surgery, Dr. Bond uses the safest, most advanced technologies in order to ensure the best possible results and the shortest possible recovery times. He first administers an anesthetic to numb the patient's eye. Next, he creates a small incision in the eye and inserts a tiny probe to emulsify (break up) and remove the eye's natural lens. Once the cataract-damaged natural lens has been removed, an artificial lens known as an intraocular lens (IOL) is inserted in its place. The latest IOLs, such as ReZoom, ReSTOR, Crystalens and Tecnis known as premium IOLs are able to focus at multiple distances, thus correcting both nearsightedness and presbyopia (reading vision). The incision is self-sealing and requires no stitches, and the patient goes home the same day.
In addition to cataract surgery, the surgeons at Bond Eye Associates use the latest state-of-the-art technologies to correct other vision problems, including nearsightedness, farsightedness and presbyopia, the decline in reading vision that occurs as people age.
