A consultation at a desk

Consultation

During the consultation, we will ask you about your eye health history and your medications, and perform some tests. During one of the tests, your eyes will be dilated. You will then be examined by the surgeon who will discuss your treatment options. We will take the time to explain cataracts, the procedures and the available lens options.

The length of this appointment is usually two hours and your personal Patient Counselor will help you throughout the process. Your Counselor can review insurance and payment options and schedule you for surgery and related appointments, such as post-operative exams.

Procedure

Laser cataract surgery is a common and relatively painless procedure. Once your surgeon removes the cataract, an artificial lens is inserted, restoring your ability to see clearly once again.

Post-Procedure

Following cataract surgery, you will have to wear protective glasses during the day and an eye shield at night. Antibiotics and steroid drops will be necessary. Your post-operative treatment plan will be outlined so you know what to expect, including your post-operative visit and your at-home recovery.

Common Questions About Laser Blepharoplasty

Why NVISION instead of a traditional plastic surgeon?

We tend to understand eyes better than general plastic surgeons, and have more respect and understanding of the importance of the function of the eyelids as related to your eyes and vision. We often express to our patients, “the eyelids are the windshield wipers to your eyes, and we need to respect the importance of preserving that function.

How does age affect the appearance of my eyes?

As we mature, the delicate skin around the eyes can appear puffy, saggy, or droopy. Our eyelid skin stretches and the muscles around the eyes weaken. Not only will this natural aging process affect how your eyes look, it can also affect your general vision, making it harder to do the things you love.

How is laser surgery different than other surgical procedures?

Most surgery centers utilize the scalpel method, leading to more bruising and swelling. We utilize the CO2 laser; an advantage because:

  • The laser provides unparalleled precision
  • The laser cauterizes blood vessels along the way, giving the surgeon improved visibility into the aesthetics of the procedure
  • Significantly less bruising because the blood vessels are more effectively cauterized and healing begins immediately
