At Advanced Cataract Surgery and LASIK, Dr. Burns is proud to offer the state-of-the-art refractive cataract surgery procedure. The procedure is performed by making a tiny incision in the eye, removing the cataract and inserting an intraocular lens implant (IOL) in its place. Dr. Burns offers the accommodating Crystalens, which works by moving with the eyes' muscles to adjust focus between near and distant objects, and the multifocal ReSTOR lens, which can also help provide visual clarity at various distances. For patients with astigmatism he offers Toric IOLs.

In addition to Temecula cataracts procedures, Dr. Burns also performs LASIK surgery and a variety of other laser vision correction procedures, including LASEK, PRK, LTK and refractive lens exchange (RLE). These procedures can all result in clearer vision and reduce patients' dependence on glasses and contacts.

Patient Testimonials

"No one wants to go from bad vision to worse vision or even no vision; however, when a co-worker of mine recommended the Advanced Cataract Surgery and LASIK, I decided to set up a consultation. During the consultation the staff answered any and all questions my husband and I had. A week later, I was in and out of there in no time. The prep time took longer than the actual procedure.

The most comforting part to me was that my husband was able to watch the surgery as Dr. Burns did the procedure. So thank you Dr. Burns, Tony and MaryLou for the ability to see for the first time in 16 years, without having to use glasses or contacts." —Delilah Rozmus

"I waited a long time for my eye correction surgery and I did a great deal of research before I made a decision.

Qualifications are always at the top of the list, but equally important to me was individual attention. Dr. Burns has all the appropriate qualifications and experience. He takes all the time I need to answer questions and talk about this new experience of seeing well again without my glasses. He is the best and he is a wonderfully nice and caring man." —Cynthia Heath Kerrigan
