Choosing the Right Cataract Surgeon

Perfect cataract surgeonIf cataracts have begun to obscure your vision and interfere with your daily life, there is no reason you should resign yourself to them. Cataract surgery is one of the most successful and predictable procedures in modern medicine. However, not all cataract surgeons can provide you with the same exceptional results.

When researching cataract surgeons in your area, it’s important to take a close look at their credentials. Some questions you should consider asking are:

  • Is the surgeon board-certified?
  • How many cataract surgeries do they perform each year, and what is their complication rate?
  • What types of premium lens implants does the surgeon offer, and how much experience do they have placing each type?

If the answers to these questions are not apparent through the surgeon’s website, schedule a consultation with them to discuss your concerns.

Our Dallas cataract surgeon Dr. Dain Brooks is certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology. He specializes in no-stitch cataract surgery with a wide range of premium lens implants. For years, Dr. Brooks worked as a refractive surgeon and chief ophthalmologist at several different army medical hospitals, where he performed complex cataract surgeries and gained experience with nearly every type of intraocular lens (IOL) available today.

Although the skill of your cataract surgeon is the foundation of any successful procedure, the role of cataract surgery technology should not be underestimated. The quality of a surgeon’s technology and tools is essential for a safe, predictable procedure. At Brooks Eye Associates, we use the innovative INFINITI® Vision System to provide highly customized cataract surgery with enhanced control and precision. INFINITI® minimizes complications, reduces surgical time, and involves a shorter recovery for patients. Dr. Brooks also uses the OZil® Torsional Handpiece to further improve the safety profile of cataract surgery.
