Brian M. Sucheski, MD, and Rebecca S. Walker, MD, FACS, are board-certified ophthalmologists with more than 10 years of experience treating Bucks County cataract surgery patients. As founders of Eye Associates, a full-service eye care facility, Drs. Sucheski and Walker provide a wide range of vision correction treatment options, including cataract surgery with advanced intraocular lens implants (IOLs). They are committed to providing the highest quality of eye care in a comfortable yet efficient environment.
Dr. Sucheski is considered an authority in his field. He was the first ophthalmologist to perform LASIK surgery at the esteemed Wills Eye Surgical Center in Bucks County, and has since performed thousands of cataract, LASIK and PRK procedures, with excellent visual results. Outside of Eye Associates, Dr. Sucheski serves as associate professor at Wills Eye Hospital. In addition, he was selected as a LaserVision Gold Surgeon, an honor given to leaders in the field of laser vision correction.
Dr. Walker is also highly respected as a leader in ophthalmology. She completed advanced fellowship training in glaucoma, has authored many textbook chapters on the evaluation and treatment of glaucoma and serves as assistant professor on the Glaucoma Service at the Wills Eye Institute. Dr. Walker is a Diplomate, Fellow and board examiner of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. She is also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
Drs. Sucheski and Walker and their team perform sophisticated "micro-incision, no-stitch" cataract surgery with standard or advanced-technology IOLs. The laser eye surgeon starts the procedure by creating a small, self-sealing incision in the eye. The surgeon then performs a step called "phacoemulsification," during which he or she inserts an ultrasonic probe that gently breaks up the cataract-diseased lens into microscopic pieces. This facilitates the removal of the cataractous lens, allowing the ophthalmologist to flush or suction the fragments from the eye. The cataract-diseased lens is replaced with an IOL to restore clear vision after surgery. Eye Associates offers an array of IOL options, including Crystalens accommodating IOLs, which move with the eye muscles to allow the patient to see clearly at several distances. They also offer astigmatism-correcting ReSTOR and Alcon toric IOLs.
Thanks to topical anesthetic eye drops that are administered before the start of cataract surgery, the procedure is generally considered painless. Depending on the type of IOL chosen, patients who undergo cataract surgery under the care of Dr. Sucheski or Dr. Walker are able to achieve improved vision at multiple distances and, in some cases, can greatly reduce or eliminate their daily dependence on prescription eyewear.
In addition to cataract surgery, the laser eye surgeons of Eye Associates offer LASIK, PRK, glaucoma treatment, management of diabetic eye diseases and treatment of dry eye, among a number of other eye care services.
