Waite Vision

Cataract Surgery

Have you been told you have cataracts? That’s great news! It’s the perfect opportunity to have your vision corrected and finally be rid of those readers, bifocals and trifocals. As you grow older — and wiser of course — you may find your eyes are no longer able to work the same as they did 20 years ago. Let’s help you reverse the clock! Everyone will develop cataracts (the clouding of your natural lens) at some point in their life. Fortunately, that cloudy lens is able to be replaced with one that will correct your vision making readers, bifocals and trifocals unnecessary.

“I am absolutely amazed at the difference in my vision after the Cataract Eye Surgery was done at Waite Vision. I would do it again if I had to without any hesitation.”

Cataract Surgery Utah

How it works.

Cataract surgery has been highly refined. Through a microscopic incision, Dr. Waite removes the cloudy lens, replacing it with a crystal-clear artificial lens. The new artificial lens sits in the exact position as the natural lens without the need of sutures. The entire procedure is performed safely in a short amount of time with no discomfort.

How do we correct your vision with cataract surgery?

You will only need cataract surgery in each eye once in your life since the new artificial lens will last you forever. Cataract surgery is the perfect time to have your vision corrected. We can place a new lens in your eye that allows you to see distance clearly AND read clearly at the same time. We call this refractive cataract surgery. Your eyes will feel 20+ years younger. Your medical insurance will assist with the cost of cataract surgery but like LASIK, it will not pay for vision correction portion. Having your vision corrected during cataract surgery and eliminating the need for those bifocals or trifocals is a lifetime investment you will continue to thank yourself for.

Dr. Waite Cataract

It starts with a cataract consultation.

Usually cataract consultations are covered by your medical insurance. During your initial consultation, a full diagnostic workup will be performed using seven different tests and the latest technology. You’ll then sit down personally with Dr. Waite, your surgeon, and discuss the PERFECT vision correction procedure tailored specifically for you along with other valuable information regarding the health of your eyes. Before leaving, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with one of our patient coordinators to discuss insurance coverage and benefits.

How much does Cataract Surgery cost?

Your medical insurance will help with some of the cost for cataract surgery depending on your co-pays and deductibles. Medical insurance does not cover the vision correction portion, so there is an additional charge for the vision correction. This is an investment in you! You will benefit from excellent vision without using bifocals or trifocals for the rest of your life. If you do not have medical insurance, no problem. You can still benefit from refractive cataract surgery through our interest free financing plans.

Cataract questions? We've got answers.

Is cataract surgery covered by insurance?

Most insurance companies will cover the cost of traditional cataract surgery, minus co-pays and deductibles. We will gladly check with your insurance company to determine your coverage prior to the surgery. If you choose to have your vision corrected during cataract surgery, insurance will not cover that part of the procedure.

How long does it take to recover from cataract surgery?

Many people are able to resume normal activities as early as the morning after cataract surgery. You may want to restrict any vigorous activities for a few days.

When should you have cataracts removed?

If your cataracts are starting to affect your normal activities such as night driving, seeing the television or reading, it is time to consider cataract surgery.

Do cataracts grow back?

No. With cataract surgery, the cloudy lens in your eye is removed and replaced with a crystal clear lens. In some cases, residual microscopic cells can grow behind the new lens months or years later. This may result in blurry vision that can easily be corrected with a brief laser treatment that removes those cells and restores clear vision.

Is cataract surgery painful?

No. There is no discomfort during cataract surgery. Local anesthesia will be used during your procedure. All you need to do is sit back and enjoy the light show.

Does cataract surgery last a lifetime?

Yes, it does. Unlike an artificial heart valve or joint, there are no moving parts that can wear out. Implants are designed to last a lifetime and are made of materials that will not irritate your eyes.

What happens if cataract is left untreated?

If left untreated cataracts can cause blindness. There is no need to delay cataract surgery since waiting can cause the procedure to be slightly more difficult. Besides, you will be ecstatic about your clear.

Can I watch TV after cataract surgery?

The best thing you can do after cataract surgery is rest for a few hours. TV watching, reading and other relaxing activities may be resumed later that same day of surgery.

What is the first sign of cataracts?

One of the most common signs of cataracts is glare and halos with night driving. Cataracts also cause blurry vision and difficulty getting just the right prescription for your glasses. If you experience these symptoms there is no need to delay cataract surgery.
