Eric Donnenfeld, MD, and Jonathan Stein, MD, are board-certified ophthalmologists with advanced fellowship training in cornea and refractive surgery. Together, they have performed thousands of successful eye procedures and boast an excellent surgical record. They are internationally recognized as leaders in ophthalmology and have developed several advanced laser surgery techniques. In addition, the surgical team was one of the first in the world to incorporate the excimer laser into their practice.
The surgical team of Ophthalmic Consultants of Connecticut offer cataract surgery with premium and conventional intraocular lens implants (IOLs). They begin the procedure by creating a small incision in the eye. Next, they extract the cataract and replace it with a premium or conventional IOL. They offer several advanced IOLs that aid in vision correction, including Crystalens, AcrySof ReSTOR, ReZoom and Tecnis. The Crystalens IOL is an accommodating lens that gently moves with the eye to help patients change focus from objects at all distances. The AcrySof ReSTOR, ReZoom and Tecnis IOLs, on the other hand, are multifocal lenses that treat myopia and age-related farsightedness (presbyopia), which allows for patients to focus on both near and distant objects. Cataract surgery with premium IOLs can potentially eliminate a patient's dependence on eye glasses or contact lenses.
In addition to cataract surgery, the surgeons offer LASIK surgery, DSAEK corneal transplantation, retina surgery and treatments for glaucoma and macular degeneration. They also offer Verisyse implantable collamer lenses, which are placed over the eye's natural lens and offer an alternative to traditional vision correction methods.
