Refractive Cataract Surgery

Refractive cataract surgery includes removal of the cataract with the additional goal of reducing your dependency on glasses after surgery. In some cases you can be free of the use of any glasses or contacts following cataract surgery. This is accomplished by the additional use of various advanced technologies such as customized ocular imaging, laser assisted cataract surgery, as well as the use of advanced technology intraocular lenses (IOL) such as toric, multifocal, or extended depth of focus intraocular lenses. The objective of refractive cataract surgery is to match your vision goals to your lifestyle needs.

Intraocular lens implants used in refractive cataract surgery include toric, Panoptix®, Vivity®, Symfony®, Synergy®, Eyhance®, and Crystalens®, with countless others in development. The doctors at Missouri Eye Institute are extremely well versed in the advantages of each lens and will discuss in detail at your consultation which implant will be tailored best to you and your vision.

Insurance typically covers part of the costs of refractive cataract surgery, but not all. Missouri Eye Institute offers CareCredit as an option for payment. The CareCredit card allows you to pursue treatment immediately and pay over time with low monthly payments that work within your budget. Our surgical counselors can provide more information to you about financing options at the time of your appointment.
