Cataract Surgery

Treatment Types

Cataract surgery lens diagram

Basic cataract surgery at Missouri Eye Institute utilizes single-focus, or monofocal, intraocular lens implants (IOLs). Monofocal IOLs allow the eyes to focus at one focal point. Basic cataract surgery is typically covered by Medicare and most insurance policies with the main goal being simply to remove the cloudy cataract. Basic cataract surgery utilizes a monofocal IOL to correct all or most of your nearsightedness or farsightness (if you have astigmatism, you may require some distance eyeglasses to see your best), but reading glasses, bifocals, or trifocals will be required after surgery in order to see well for near and mid-range distances. Glasses can usually be prescribed by your local optometrist about one month after your final cataract surgery.
