Cataract Management

Cataract Surgery Referrals

Cataracts are a cloudiness of the crystalline lens inside your eye, which causes a gradual blurriness in your vision.  When surgery is required Dr. Kvitle makes the appropriate referrals to a Cataract Specialist for removal of the cataracts but is involved in all of the required post-operative care for our patients.

Astigmatism Management

Limbal Relaxing Incisions (LRI) are a modification of the cornea as a way to reduce various amounts of astigmatism for better uncorrected vision after surgery. LRI’s can be performed at the time of cataract surgery or as an independent procedure. When surgery is required Dr. Kvitle makes the appropriate referrals to a specialist that does the procedure.

Crystalens Accommodating Lens Implant

Designed to be like your natural lens, the Crystalens allows you to see near, far and everything in between with less dependence on spectacle lenses.  The Crystalens not only solves the cataract problem, it gives you back your full range of vision.  In fact, many patients hardly need their glasses after cataract surgery.

Ascan Biometry

An Ascan is required when having cataract surgery.  An Ascan is a painless, computerized test that measures the length of the eye to determine the correct implant that goes back in your eye after surgery as a replacement of the natural lens.  When needed this procedure is done in our office
