Sheri Rowen, MD, is a board-certified, fellowship-trained ophthalmologist with expertise in cataract surgery. A pioneer in the field of eye surgery, Dr. Rowen was one of the first ophthalmologists in the country to perform "instant vision" surgery using micro-incisions and anesthetic eye drops. She was also one of the first eye surgeons to offer accommodating intraocular lens implants. Dr. Rowen boasts an outstanding surgical record of more than 20,000 successful eye surgery procedures.
Dr. Rowen uses the advanced "no-needle, no-stitch, no-patch" method of cataract surgery with phacoemulsification. During the procedure, she numbs the eye with anesthetic eye drops. Then, she creates a tiny, self-sealing incision in the eye and breaks apart the clouded lens using ultrasound technology. The lens pieces are then extracted through the incision and replaced with a high-quality intraocular lens implant (IOL). She offers several types of IOLs, including Crystalens, an accommodating IOL which improves the eyes' ability to change focus from near to distant objects, and the multifocal AcrySof ReSTOR and Tecnis IOLs, which can provide both near and distance vision.
Dr. Rowen also performs custom wavefront LASIK surgery, Epi-LASIK, photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and oculoplastics. In addition, she offers Visian implantable collamer lens implants for patients who are not good candidates for LASIK.
