Choose a Cataract Surgeon
Choosing the right cataract surgeon can make a big difference in the quality of your results, as well as the overall safety of your cataract surgery. The skill, experience, and background of the surgeon – as well as the types of premium lens implants they offer – should all play a role in your research process. It is important to find a surgeon and staff you trust and feel completely comfortable with.
Your Cataract Surgery Consultation
If you want to learn more about a specific cataract surgeon in your area, your first step should be to schedule a consultation. There is no need to feel committed during this initial meeting. Take this opportunity to raise any questions and concerns you have about cataract surgery, and about the surgeon themselves.
Some examples of questions to ask a cataract surgeon include:
- Are you certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology?
- How many cataract surgeries do you perform each year?
- What experience do you have treating complex or challenging cases?
- What cataract surgery technology do you use?
- What can I expect from cataract surgery? Are there any potential complications I should be aware of?
Your consultation will also give you a chance to gauge your comfort level with the surgeon, staff, and office. The surgeon should thoroughly explain the cataract surgery process to you, going over the benefits and drawbacks of each lens implant as they relate to your specific needs.
