Michael Summerfield, MD, is a board-certified ophthalmologist at Visium Eye Institute, a renowned eye care practice affiliated with LasikPlus. Patients from all over the Rockville, Maryland area trust Visium for treatment of cataracts. Under Dr. Summerfield's leadership, the Visium team maintains a comfortable and relaxing environment where patients receive high quality medical and surgical care.
During cataract surgery, Dr. Summerfield first makes a tiny incision in the eye and uses high-frequency sound waves or pulses of fluid to break up the clouded lens. Dr. Summerfield then carefully extracts the pieces and places an artificial lens (called an intraocular lens or IOL) to improve vision. IOLs are designed to correct for farsightedness, nearsightedness, astigmatism or presbyopia. There are a variety of IOLs to choose from, each with its own unique advantages. Some IOLs enhance both near and distance vision, while others can simultaneously treat astigmatism. Dr. Summerfield will recommend the best fit for the individual patient.
Visium Eye Institute's team of professionals, as well Dr. Summerfield's extensive experience, allow patients to relax in a comfortable environment and enjoy their new vision. Dr. Summerfield's partnership with LasikPlus is beneficial for patients seeking a referral for LASIK surgery.
