Michael Gordon, MD, Jack Weiss, MD, and David Schanzlin, MD, are board-certified ophthalmologists and San Diego cataract surgeons at Gordon Weiss Schanzlin Vision Institute. The practice is one of only a few nationwide to offer all-laser refractive cataract surgery with the LenSx femtosecond laser. Under the leadership of Drs. Gordon, Weiss and Schanzlin, the entire team strives to provide patients with the highest standards of quality eye care.
Drs. Gordon, Weiss and Schanzlin offer traditional and all-laser surgery to their San Diego cataracts patients. During laser cataract surgery, the surgeon uses the LenSx femtosecond laser to make a tiny incision in the corner of the eye to access the lens. The lens is broken into pieces and the pieces are gently removed from the eye through the same incision. The surgeons then place an intraocular lens implant (IOL) designed to restore clear vision after cataract surgery. Gordon Weiss Schanzlin Vision Institute uses a variety of premium IOLs, including Crystalens, ReStor and toric lenses to provide the best possible outcomes.
Cataract surgery patients are given topical anesthesia to prevent any pain during the procedure. Patients of Drs. Gordon, Weiss and Schanzlin are able to enjoy improved vision at multiple distances, sometimes without the need for glasses or contact lenses.
In addition to cataract surgery, Gordon Weiss Schanzlin Vision Institute offers LASIK and PRK vision correction procedures, treatment of keratoconus and implantable contact lenses.
