Our Procedures
Cataract Technique
There is evidence cataract removal started 4000 years ago with a crude surgery called “couching”.  Since then, many methods have been invented, but no other method uses less energy than Dr. Depenbusch’s technique.
Cataract Diagram
A cataract is a progressive clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision.

What exactly is a cataract?

A cataract is a gradual clouding of the eye’s natural lens. It is a common condition that can be safely and easily treated with surgical procedures to restore vision by replacing the clouded natural lens with an artificial, clear lens.

The most common early symptoms of cataracts are: glare with headlights, needing more light for reading and general frustration with visual clarity.

Toric lenses

A toric lens is a monofocal lens that corrects astigmatism allowing them to focus at ONE of the following: near, intermediate OR distance.

Multifocal lenses

Multifocal lenses are the lenses that can correct “everything”.  Most patients that choose these lenses can see near, far and some intermediate distances.  Most patients that choose this lens will never need glasses again.
