Choosing A Cataract Surgeon
More than three million cataract surgeries are performed in the U.S. every year.2 But even though the procedure is common, you should take time to carefully select your cataract surgeon.
Choosing the right surgeon is especially important if you want a premium IOL to reduce your need for glasses after cataract surgery or if you want laser-assisted cataract surgery, since these require specific expertise.
When considering cataract surgeons, a good way to start is to ask the eye doctor who performs your routine eye exams for a recommendation.
Also, search online for cataract surgeons near you. Pay particular attention to the surgeon's credentials and experience, and the type of technology offered.
Before making your final decision, schedule a pre-op consultation so you can meet the surgeon in person and decide if he or she gives you the comfort level you desire.
