Dr. Seibel performs advanced "micro-incision, no-stitch" cataract surgery with premium intraocular lens (IOL) implants. He starts cataract surgery by creating a self-sealing incision in the eye, which he uses to gain access to the eye's cataract-diseased lens. Dr. Seibel then utilizes an ultrasound device to break up the cataractous, or cloudy, crystalline lens into small pieces before suctioning or flushing them out of the eye. Once Dr. Seibel has removed the cataractous lens, he replaces it with an intraocular lens implant (IOL), so the patient can see clearly following surgery. Seibel Vision Surgery offers a variety of premium IOLs to reduce or eliminate dependence on eyeglasses, including the Crystalens; ReSTOR and Tecnis multifocal lenses so patients can see well at multiple distances; and toric lenses to correct astigmatism.
Cataract surgery is performed under topical anesthesia using drops with the goal of eliminating pain while avoiding needle injections. Dr. Seibel's cataract surgery patients typically notice significantly improved vision, and in some cases they are able to greatly decrease their reliance on prescription glasses or contact lenses.
In addition to cataract surgery, Seibel Vision Surgery also offers Refractive Lens Exchange surgery for appropriate patients without significant cataracts who nonetheless want the freedom from glasses that advanced lens implants can facilitate. Glaucoma evaluation and treatment is offered as well as general medical eye care and evaluation.

"Dear Dr. Seibel, For many years, I have lived with advanced cataracts in both eyes. As much as I wanted to improve my eyesight, I was never confident enough to undertake this surgery with any of the medical doctors I consulted. I was referred to you by my primary physician and I quote him, 'Albert, Dr. Seibel is a doctor's doctor and I would only have him do surgery; he is the best.' You have recently completed surgery on both my eyes with 20/20 and 20/30 vision results. This is truly amazing. I want to thank you for restoring a world of light and color that was missing in my life for many years. My vision has been restored to that of my youth. You have made my surgery experience a trouble free and unique one. Your cutting edge advanced knowledge is a blessing for all your patients. Thank you, Dr. Seibel, for taking such good care of me. Your able staff is a credit to your practice." —Albert Jacard
