Considering Cataract Surgery?
WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR EYES, TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THE SURGEON
Did you know that the human eye is the second most complex organ in the body? Therefore, when it comes to your eyes, it is important to choose a qualified physician for all of your eye care needs.
Dr. Jonathan Fritz with Carolina Ophthalmology, P.A. is a board certified ophthalmologist and experienced cataract surgeon. Significant advancements in cataract removal can have a very real impact on your vision. If you're anticipating cataract surgery, here are three innovations offered by Dr. Fritz:
Laser Cataract Surgery
Carolina Ophthalmology is the only practice in WNC that performs this bladeless, more precise cataract removal surgery. The LenSx Laser provides accurate, real-time measurements before and during the procedure. It alslo reduces recovery time and decreases trauma to the eye.
THE ORA SYSTEM
This technology is exclusively available at Carolina Ophthalmology. It makes lens selection possible during cataract surgery, resulting in more reliable post-operative vision.
PREMIUM INTRAOCULAR LENSES (IOL)
An intraocular lens replaces the natural lens removed during cataract surgery. Premium lenses can correct astigmatism, nearsightedness and farsightedness. In addition, their outcomes are often comparable to LASIK. The new Tecnis Symfony IOL is the first and only lens that provides quality continuous vision so patients can see clearly at near, intermediate and far distances.
"Technology continues to evolve as it relates to cataract surgery and improvements in intraocular lenses, allowing me to customize the procedure to each individual's needs," Dr. Fritz states. He also provides general ophthalmology examinations and treats a wide variety of eye conditions such as corneal issues, glaucoma, dry eyes and diabetic eye disease.
