Cataract Surgery

Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is the most common eye surgery performed in the United States. At Inland Eye Institute we offer some of the most advanced techniques for removing cataracts.

Modern cataract surgery involves removing the cataract through a very small opening on the cornea and replacing the cloudy lens with a clear plastic implant called an Intraocular Lens (IOL). The lens implants are made of acrylic, silicone or other types of inert plastic that remains indefinitely in the eye. There are different types of IOLs that provide different levels of vision after cataract surgery:

  • Monofocal IOLs: Providing vision for one distance only
  • Lifestyle IOLs: Providing vision for multiple distances, often eliminating the need for astigmatism correction

Dr. Erika Sanchez and Dr. John Kim uses microsurgical techniques that usually eliminate the need for any stitches. This means that vision recovery is much quicker and you can go back to most of your normal activities the next day.

Cataract surgery is usually performed at our own surgery center located in the Inland Eye Institute. The Eye Surgery Center has seen the completion of thousands of major ophthalmic procedures since its opening in 1985, and has become an ambulatory surgery center of choice for the Inland Empire.
