Clear, Bright Days are Ahead
When you have cataracts, your daily life begins to take on a cloudy, dull-colored or yellowed appearance. Dinner with friends, time spent with grandchildren, delight with hobbies and quiet moments reading become unfulfilling or even impossible to enjoy. Rather than withdrawing from life’s simple pleasures because of poor vision, Dr. Mariano has a better option: cataract surgery.
The first step is to schedule a cataract consultation with our team. Please plan to spend up to 2 hours with us as we assess your eyesight and let you know your options for vision improvement.
Dr. Mariano has performed thousands of cataract surgeries, helping people restore clarity and brightness to their lives. He uses the tried-and-true method of small-incision cataract surgery to gently break up your natural eye lens that has become cloudy, remove the fragments from your eye and then insert a crystal-clear artificial lens. This is a very quick procedure, often taking less than 20 minutes. Our patients are often amazed that their vision can be so vastly improved after such a short time in surgery.
The Secret to Dr. Mariano’s Cataract Surgery Success
While Dr. Mariano has performed thousands of cataract surgeries, none were done exactly the same. He thoroughly researches the latest advances in technologies – both from the surgery standpoint and for replacement lenses. His main goal is to always implement procedures and lenses that are safe and effective for vision improvement.
During cataract surgery in Grand Rapids or Hibbing, Dr. Mariano offers a variety of replacement lens options. Called intraocular lenses (IOLs), there are different options to not only correct your cataract but also tackle your other vision challenges such as:
- Astigmatism: corrected using toric IOLs
- Poor reading vision (presbyopia): corrected using multifocal, accommodating or extended depth of focus IOLs
We call these options Lifestyle Lenses because there are different IOL options to fit your own unique lifestyle. If you are an active person who would love to have your youthful vision back, Dr. Mariano can recommend lenses to meet your vision goals. Some patients do not need glasses after surgery (even reading glasses)!
Cataract surgery recovery is short and results are almost immediate. In fact, most patients notice significant improvement in vision soon after the surgery is completed.
