CATARACT SURGERY HOUSTON
Advanced Cataract Surgery
You are a little older and a lot wiser; however, your vision isn't the same as it was 20 years ago. Cataracts (clouding of the natural lens) affect everyone, including you, at some point.
Now is the time to have your vision corrected and get rid of those readers, bifocals, and trifocals. That cloudy lens can be replaced with one that will correct your vision, making readers, bifocals and trifocals unnecessary. Let us assist you in turning back the clock!
What is a cataract?
It’s important to note a cataract is a natural part of the aging process. As you get into your 50s, 60s and 70s, cataracts start to develop when the proteins within the lens of the eye begin to break down. The result is your once-clear lens becomes cloudy, colors become dull and vision starts to deteriorate.
Cataracts develop slowly, subtle at first and gradually affect your ability to read, watch TV, drive and do other daily activities. Not only are cataracts frustrating and inconvenient, they also present a safety issue. Consider the effects of declining night vision, the inability to read street signs clearly and even the loss of depth perception. These challenges put individuals at risk during otherwise simple, everyday activities like driving across town or getting out of the bathtub.
Fortunately the advanced laser cataract surgery techniques available at SuraVision are designed to “turn back the clock” for more youthful, vibrant vision and the peace of mind that comes with it.
A Modern Approach to Cataract Surgery
Eye cataract surgeons address cataracts by removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with a new one. In fact, cataract surgery is one of the most common surgical procedures on the planet.
Cataract surgery has advanced significantly since becoming common in the 1950s. Dr. Sura uses groundbreaking laser technology and techniques to deliver precise and personalized results.
1. Dr. Sura creates a tiny opening to reach the eye’s natural lens, which has become cloudy and turned into a cataract.
2. He breaks up and removes the cloudy lens through the tiny opening.
3.The cloudy natural lens is replaced with a crystal-clear, biocompatible, artificial lens.
The entire procedure takes just 10 minutes per eye … but your new lens will last forever.
Many patients tell us their youthful vision is restored, and it’s like their eyes are 20+ years younger.
What is “Advanced” Cataract Surgery?
Basic manual cataract surgery techniques involve a blade to create the opening, then the surgeon will replace your cloudy lens with a “fixed-focal” artificial lens. This means the lens has a set distance at which it will focus, and patients will typically need readers or bifocals for many daily activities.
In contrast, Dr. Sura strongly recommends Advanced Cataract Surgery for those who qualify. This advanced procedure is bladeless, and it uses lasers to access the cloudy lens. Additionally, we have partnerships with a number of leading-edge lens manufacturers around the world, which allows us to obtain many different types of “multifocal” lenses that can be customized to each patient.
The multifocal lens technology is exactly what it sounds like - it gives patients the ability to focus on objects at multiple distances. So not only do patients achieve visual clarity, they can also reduce or eliminate the need for readers or bifocals for many of their daily activities.
At your evaluation, Dr. Sura will discuss all your cataract surgery options with you, so you can make an informed decision about your vision and your health.

How much does Laser Cataract Surgery cost?
Your medical insurance will help with some of the cost for cataract surgery, depending on your copays and deductibles. Vision correction will be an additional investment beyond what insurance will cover, but this is an investment in you! You can enjoy the benefits of reducing or even eliminating the need for readers or bifocals for most daily activities.
If you do not have medical insurance, you can still benefit from refractive cataract surgery through our interest-free financing plans.
It starts with a SuraVision Ocular Analysis.
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. Sura, your surgeon, and discuss the vision correction procedure, tailored specifically for you, along with other valuable information regarding the health of your eyes. You will also have the opportunity to discuss insurance coverage and benefits.
