Best in Eye Surgery | Best in Eye Care
Cataracts are a common issue in which the lens of your eye becomes cloudy. With age, the proteins in your eye lenses eventually break down and clump together, resulting in the fogginess that comes with cataracts. Once the condition progresses enough, cataracts can cause sensitivity to light, poor night vision, double vision, and even blindness.

Dropless™ Cataract Surgery
Dropless™ cataract surgery is the most recent development in cataract surgery. It makes the cataract surgery easier for you as a patient, and it reduces risk. After a normal cataract surgery, the patient has to use several types of eye drops multiple times a day for weeks after surgery. With the Dropless surgery, we reduce your eye drop use almost entirely. During the surgery we apply medication into the eye to reduce your need for drops after you get home.
Laser Cataract Surgery

Right now we offer traditional cataract surgery, Femto Laser Assisted Surgery (FLAS), and Dropless cataract surgery.

In FLAS we use a laser rather than traditional tools. It provides many patients with safer surgery and faster recovery. It is also a great option for patients with astigmatism who want to treat their astigmatism during their cataract surgery. We can correct several vision issues with laser cataract surgery that we cannot correct with traditional cataract surgery.

Laser cataract surgery is an especially beneficial procedure for eyes with specific conditions that might not respond to another method of cataract surgery. Set up an appointment with us to discuss your individual eye condition.

Premium Lenses

A cataract surgery lens is inserted during cataract surgery to replace your blurry natural lens that we have just removed. This is where the fun begins! Our Las Vegas eye surgeons can customize your vision to fit your active lifestyle. It is your chance to reduce your dependency on eyeglasses. We have several different types of intraocular lenses to fit your needs. We match your detailed workup with our lens options to find the one that will give you your desired vision. Here are some of the lenses we offer:

  • Symfony Lens
  • Panoptix
  • Basic Lens
  • Toric Lens
There’s no need to worry about which lens option is right for you, though! After your initial appointment with one of our surgeons, we will make a lens recommendation and you will be able to ask questions about your lens options.

What To Expect

Better Than Traditional Cataract Surgery

For most people, cataracts develop slowly. You may go years thinking that your vision is perfectly fine even though it may be worsening slowly. Before you know it, it will become blurry and uncomfortable — warranting surgical treatment.

The good news is that while nerve-racking, cataract surgery now has a 99% success rate with minimal complications and practically no downtime required. In other words, there is no reason for you to have to live with cataracts any longer. No matter how much your cataracts have progressed, Brimhall Eye’s eye surgeons will provide you with a proven and effective procedure that will help improve your quality of life.

Personalized Treatment

Tailored, Customized Cataract Surgery

Our cataract workups are far more extensive than the average cataract workup. We want to really spend time with you and your eyes so we can make the best recommendations possible. We will talk about what you want your vision to be like and what your goals for your vision are. We believe that a higher quality workup makes for higher quality results and safer treatment. After your extensive workup, we will make a recommendation as to whether or not you need surgery. If you do need cataract surgery then we will tell you your lens options and give you a recommendation. You will be able to meet with one of our counselors and talk through the options before making a decision.

Once you decide which lens is right for you, then we will set a surgery date! Cataracts are fixed one eye at a time, so if you have cataracts in both eyes then you will have two surgery dates. We have our own surgery center, so we are able to really personalize your surgery and experience. The procedure itself is very safe. Our eye surgeons and staff have a very gentle demeanor and our patients have wonderful outcomes.

Cataract Surgery FAQs

From Dropless cataract surgery to laser cataract surgery, we have options for every eye. Contact us today to come in for a cataract surgery appointment.

If you have a cataract, then removing the lens and replacing it with a clear artificial lens is the best treatment available. We offer a couple of different types of cataract surgery at our surgery center. You can read about our surgery options below, or walk through a cataract surgery with us.

We can even correct astigmatism and other vision issues while we are replacing your lenses!

A cataract is a cloudy lens inside the eye. You are born with the lens, but over time it can become blurry and foggy, impairing your vision. Cataracts don’t hurt, but they get worse over time, so it’s important to get them fixed when they first begin to affect your vision. Cataracts can form at any age, and most happen after the age of 50. Most of our cataract surgery patients are over the age of 50. If you are going to the eye doctor regularly then your doctor will watch out for cataracts. If your vision is cloudy and you think you may have cataracts, then make an appointment with us and we’ll see if cataract surgery is the solution for you!

Before your first appointment, you will fill out a couple forms online so we can get to know you and your medical history. We will do an extensive workup and ask you questions about your eyesight, lifestyle, and vision needs.

If this is your first time to Brimhall Eye, then visit our new patient center for information on forms, financing, and for a virtual tour of our office.

Many of our patients tell us they were nervous leading up to their surgery, but that it was easy and painless. Most of our patients don’t even remember their surgery. Getting surgery can be really scary! We want to make you feel as comfortable with the surgery as possible before you come into our office.

We will inform you of every step we take during cataract surgery, and what options are available to you. We have found that for our nervous patients, knowing what the surgery is like helps them to feel less anxious. Our counselors are always available to answer your questions.

We can fix your astigmatism while we are fixing your cataracts. Your new artificial lens will be specifically fitted to your eye to correct both your cataract and astigmatism in the same surgery. We can also correct your astigmatism and vision with our laser-assisted surgery.

Get rid of glasses and contacts for good!

We use either high-frequency ultrasound or a laser to perform your cataract surgery. Both procedures are similar. Before getting started, the surgeon numbs your eye so that you won’t feel a thing. After breaking up the clouded lens with the ultrasound or laser, the surgeon removes it carefully. Next, they replace the old lens with an artificial one. Finally, they close the incision and place a protective shield over the eye. The whole process takes about 15 minutes
Following surgery, your vision will be a bit blurry, but that should clear up in about 24 hours. With regular surgery, you’ll receive your eye drops and instructions for use. Following those instructions is essential for protecting your eye and avoiding infection. Before you go home, you’ll also schedule a follow-up for the next day so that your surgeon can ensure you’re healing properly.
