The Center for Cataract is the hub of Carolina Eye Associates. Each year thousands of patients undergo cataract surgery at Carolina Eye, benefiting from the experience of world-class surgeons rated as America's best.
Carolina Eye has become the first ophthalmic center on the east coast and second in the United States to offer cataract surgery with the Catalys™ Precision Laser System. Catalys™ combines a state-of-the-art femtosecond laser, advanced 3D Optical Coherence Tomography imaging, sophisticated software and a host of other unique features that deliver a precise, customized procedure and an exceptional experience for patients.
We continue to be on the leading edge of technology and offer the ORA™ System Optiwave Refractive Analysis. The OptiPlus™ is a revolutionary new option used during your cataract procedure to optimize your postoperative visual outcomes.
We are proud to offer our cataract patients the latest in advanced intraocular lenses (IOLs) which are used to replace the natural lens of the eye during surgery. Traditional IOLs provide patients with either good distance or good reading vision, but not both. The new accommodating IOLs like the Crystalens give patients the ability to have glasses-free vision from reading to distance vision. Please speak with our doctors to see if you are a candidate for this exciting new technology.
At Carolina Eye, we use only the latest and most advanced surgical techniques, enabling our doctors to perform without stitches, needles, or even the need for an eye patch to wear home. Our patients call it Comfort Cataract Surgery because they're able to return to many of their normal daily activities on the same day as their procedure. Because no stitches or needles are used, our surgical techniques are taking the fear out of having cataract surgery.
