In complicated cases of corneal irregularities or for astigmatism correction, corneal topography to measure the entire front and back surface of the cornea is usually performed. Your intraocular pressures are tested and refraction (prescription) checked, and a measurement of pupil size will help determine which intraocular lens will work for you.

Your surgeon will take some additional surgical measurements and then sit down with you to discuss the risks and benefits of the procedures as well as your goals and expectations

Once the best procedure to improve your vision has been determined, a staff member will schedule your procedure date and any additional pre-operative testing required. We will also discuss payment and financing options with you if needed, including interest-free payment plans and other payment options that are available.

IOL Counseling

Cataract surgery replaces your eye's natural lens with a clear artificial intraocular lens (IOL). If your eye is healthy, you have a choice of the type of implant used. McMann Eye Institute provides multiple Lifestyle lens options, including Multifocal, Accommodating and Toric lenses. The standard cataract replacement lens provides optimum vision at distances beyond ten feet or so. The new Lifestyle IOLs have advanced designs to give our patients the ability to see near and far mostly without the use of glasses. In such cases, glasses are normally only needed for very small print or reading in areas without much light.

You have unique visual requirements and the best approach is to fit the best lens implant available to accommodate each patient's individual situation. We will be certain that you receive professional and thorough education regarding lens implant options.
After consultation with your doctor, you may decide that you wish to have cataract surgery. Before you make this decision, we will inform you about the health of your eyes, any risks and potential complications of surgery, and the alternatives, as well as discuss the benefits for you.

You also need to know what you can reasonably expect for visual improvement following the procedure. You will be fully informed about the surgery and its attendant risks and benefits. Only then can you make an informed decision to proceed.
