Michel Pop, MD, is a board-certified ophthalmologist and cataract surgeon in Gatineau. Through advanced microsurgery techniques and a wide selection of intraocular lenses, Dr. Pop skillfully restores clear, crisp vision to those who suffer from cataracts. Outside of his practice, Dr. Pop frequently lectures to his peers and publishes on topics relating to cataract and refractive surgery. Dr. Pop’s work has been featured in respected publications such as Ophthalmology and the Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.
Dr. Pop begins cataract surgery by making a tiny incision in the corner of the eye. He uses ultrasound energy to gently break up the cataractous lens into small pieces; then, he carefully suctions the pieces out of the eye. After the pieces of the lens have been removed, Dr. Pop inserts a clear, plastic intraocular lens (IOL) to replace the lens. Not every patient will need the same type of intraocular lens; Dr. Pop will recommend the best type of lens in each case.
Cataract surgery lasts about 20 minutes and does not hurt. Many of Dr. Pop’s patients are able to achieve partial or complete independence from glasses or contact lenses and are better able to handle daily tasks like driving or reading.
Dr. Pop also offers LASIK, all-laser LASIK, PRK and corneal cross-linking treatment at his Gatineau location.
