Cataract Surgery in Thousand Oaks, CA

Cataracts develop when the natural lens of the eye becomes cloudy, usually due to aging or other factors (like injury, genetics, or certain medications). This clouding obstructs vision: at the beginning, it may be treated with glasses, but once the cataract advances surgery is required to recover clear vision.

During cataract surgery, the cloudy lens is replaced with an artificial one, typically resulting in improved vision and quality of life. There are several Intraocular Lens (IOL) options available. 

Basic and Premium IOLs: Exploring your Options

The most common option is a monofocal lens. This basic lens has a fixed focal point, meaning it provides clear vision at only one distance, usually either near or far. This means that after surgery, individuals may still require glasses for certain activities, such as reading or distance vision, depending on the chosen focal length of the lens.

A better alternative to basic lenses are premium Intraocular Lenses or Lifestyle Lenses. Unlike monofocal lenses, which have a fixed focal point, lifestyle lenses offer various focal points. This  allows for clear vision at different distances, such as near, intermediate, and far.This flexibility enables individuals to enjoy a broader range of vision without heavily relying on corrective eyewear for daily activities.

Lifestyle Lenses for Enhanced Vision after Cataract Surgery

To find the best IOL for your vision needs, schedule a consultation with one of the surgeons at our Thousand Oaks location. Our premium IOL options include:

  • Acrysof® IQ Vivity® Extended Vision IOL: This intraocular lens (IOL) offers extended depth of focus. This provides patients with enhanced visual clarity at various distances, including near, intermediate, and far. This lens is designed to address presbyopia, allowing patients to reduce their dependence on glasses for daily activities.
  • PanOptix Trifocal IOL: this is a multifocal lens that provides vision correction at three distances: near, intermediate, and far. This lens is particularly beneficial for individuals seeking freedom from both distance and near vision correction following cataract surgery.
  • Light Adjustable IOL: The Light Adjustable IOL is a unique intraocular lens that offers customizable vision correction tailored to each patient’s visual needs. Unlike traditional IOLs, which are static once implanted, the Light Adjustable IOL allows for postoperative adjustments to optimize visual outcomes.

PRK Surgery (Photorefractive Keratectomy)

What is PRK Surgery?

PRK Surgery (Photorefractive Keratectomy) is a type of laser eye surgery that is used to correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. PRK is an alternative to LASIK eye surgery and is particularly suitable for individuals who may not be candidates for LASIK due to certain corneal characteristics.

Overview of the PRK surgery process:

  1. Corneal Epithelium Removal:
    • In PRK, the surgeon begins by removing the thin outer layer of the cornea called the epithelium. This can be done using an alcohol solution, a special brush, or a laser.
  2. Laser Reshaping of the Cornea:
    • Once the epithelium is removed, a laser is used to precisely reshape the cornea. The laser ablates or removes microscopic amounts of corneal tissue based on the patient’s refractive error. The goal is to correct the curvature of the cornea and improve the focus of light on the retina.
  3. Healing Process:
    • Unlike LASIK, where a corneal flap is created, PRK does not involve creating a flap. Instead, the corneal surface is allowed to regenerate naturally. The healing process involves the growth of new epithelial cells over the treated area.
  4. Post-operative Care:
    • Following PRK surgery, patients are given medicated eye drops to aid in the healing process and prevent infection. Recovery may take a bit longer compared to LASIK, and patients may experience temporary discomfort during the initial days.

Key considerations for PRK surgery include:

  • Corneal Thickness: PRK may be a suitable option for individuals with thinner corneas who may not be ideal candidates for LASIK.
  • Occupational Considerations: PRK may be recommended for individuals with occupations or lifestyles that carry a risk of corneal injury, as it eliminates the creation of a corneal flap.
  • Healing Time: The initial visual recovery may take longer with PRK compared to LASIK. Patients typically experience optimal vision several weeks after the procedure.

PRK is a well-established and effective procedure for vision correction, and its suitability depends on individual factors. It’s important to consult with an experienced refractive surgeon or eye care professional to determine the most appropriate laser eye surgery option based on your eye health and lifestyle.

Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)

Refractive lens exchange (RLE), is when a clear lens is implanted to replace your eye’s natural lens to correct your vision.

This procedure is often used for pre-cataract patients, as a preventative vision correction solution. Refractive lens exchange (RLE) can also correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Dry Eye Treatment

Dry eye is an irritating, painful, and common condition in which the eye fails to properly produce quality tears. When left untreated, it may lead to ulcers and scars on the cornea.

Depending on the severity of your condition, there are a variety of treatments to relieve dry eyes.

Pediatric Strabismus Surgery

Pediatric strabismus surgery is a surgical procedure performed to correct misalignment of the eyes in kids with strabismus—characterized by an imbalance in the muscles that control eye movement, resulting in both or one eyes turning inward (esotropia), outward (exotropia), upward (hypertropia), or downward (hypotropia).

The goal of pediatric strabismus surgery is to realign the eyes, allowing them to work together properly and improving binocular vision. The procedure involves adjusting the tension or position of the eye muscles to achieve proper alignment.

Glaucoma Surgery

Glaucoma surgery encompasses various surgical procedures aimed at reducing intraocular pressure (IOP) to prevent or slow down the progression of glaucoma—a group of eye conditions characterized by damage to the optic nerve, often associated with elevated IOP.

There are several types of glaucoma surgery, including:

1. Trabeculectomy: This is one of the most common surgical procedures for glaucoma. During a trabeculectomy, a small flap is created in the sclera (the white part of the eye), allowing aqueous humor (the fluid inside the eye) to drain out of the eye and reduce IOP. Sometimes, a small device called a shunt or a drainage tube may be used to facilitate drainage.

2. Glaucoma Drainage Implants: Also known as glaucoma shunts or tubes, these devices are implanted into the eye to help drain aqueous humor and lower IOP. They are often used when other forms of glaucoma surgery, such as trabeculectomy, have not been successful.

3. Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS): MIGS procedures are a newer category of glaucoma surgery that aim to reduce IOP through minimally invasive techniques with shorter recovery times and fewer complications compared to traditional surgeries. Examples of MIGS procedures include trabecular micro-bypass stents and canaloplasty.

4. Laser Surgery: Various laser procedures, such as selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT), laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI), and cyclophotocoagulation, are used to lower IOP by improving the outflow of aqueous humor or reducing its production.

The choice of glaucoma surgery depends on factors such as the type and severity of glaucoma, the patient’s overall health, and the surgeon’s preference and expertise. The goal of glaucoma surgery is to reduce IOP and preserve vision by preventing further damage to the optic nerve. However, it is important to note that while glaucoma surgery can help manage the condition, it may not always restore lost vision. Patients should discuss the potential risks, benefits, and alternatives of glaucoma surgery with their ophthalmologist or glaucoma specialist to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for their individual needs.


Entropion and ectropion are both eyelid conditions that involve the abnormal positioning of the eyelid margin, leading to irritation, discomfort, and in some cases, vision problems.

1. Entropion: Entropion occurs when the eyelid margin turns inward, causing the eyelashes and skin to rub against the cornea and conjunctiva (the clear membrane covering the white part of the eye). This can lead to symptoms such as eye redness, irritation, tearing, and blurred vision. Entropion is commonly caused by age-related changes to the eyelid tissues, scarring from injury or surgery, or underlying conditions such as trachoma or Bell’s palsy.

2. Ectropion: Ectropion occurs when the eyelid margin turns outward, exposing the inner surface of the eyelid and the conjunctiva to the environment. This can lead to symptoms such as eye dryness, irritation, tearing, and sensitivity to light. Ectropion may also cause cosmetic concerns, as the lower eyelid may appear droopy or sagging. Ectropion is commonly caused by age-related weakening of the eyelid tissues, scarring from injury or surgery, or conditions such as facial nerve palsy or skin disorders.

Both entropion and ectropion can be treated with surgical correction to reposition the eyelid margin and restore normal eyelid function. The specific treatment approach will depend on the underlying cause of the condition, the severity of symptoms, and other factors such as the patient’s overall health and preferences. It is essential for individuals experiencing symptoms of entropion or ectropion to consult with an ophthalmologist or oculoplastic surgeon for evaluation and appropriate management.


Light Adjustable Lenses

Light Adjustable Lens: Adjustable Intraocular Lens (IOL) – Light adjustable lenses, or adjustable intraocular lenses, are a modern intraocular lens type that can provide more precise vision adjustments for cataract patients.
