Cataract Surgery

Cataract Microsurgery and Intraocular Lens Implants

Of all the surgeries performed in this country, cataract removal is one of the safest and most successful. With our superior service, you can remain relaxed and comfortable during the optimal procedure. We perform most of our cataract surgeries at the Physicians Surgery Center Lancaster General.

We have performed many thousands of cataract surgeries, over 2000 surgeries in 2018 alone, and use the most technologically advanced methods of cataract removal. 

The surgical procedure is performed through a micro incision. We emulsify and remove the cloudy lens with an ultrasonic probe. We then insert a modern, foldable intraocular lens (IOL) to take the place of your cataract.

Intraocular Lenses (IOLs)

The cataract is replaced with an advanced IOL. Each IOL has a predetermined prescription power which is customized to your needs. This technology can reduce your dependence on glasses.


Benefits of our Services:

  • Small, sutureless incisions
  • Topical (needle-free) anesthesia
  • Rapid recovery time
  • Rapid return of vision

We offer many intraocular lens choices. These options include the standard monofocal lens, an astigmatism reducing lens such as the AcroSof Toric lens as well as the ReSTOR Active Focus Multifocal Lens. Each patient is unique. During your preoperative visit, we discuss the best option for your individual needs.
