Cataract surgery is one of the most common and successful surgical procedures performed today. Patients can have their vision restored quickly with no-needle no-stitch dropless cataract surgery outside of the hospital setting in an ambulatory surgical center.
Most patients elect to have the lens implant that is included by their insurance, but some patients elect to have a “Premium Lens” that corrects astigmatism or provides uncorrect distance and near vision. These lenses are not covered by health insurance, so patients have an out-of-pocket cost if they elect to have a “Premium Lens” implanted.
Femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery was recently approved by the FDA, but to date, there is no scientific evidence that there is any long term benefit to the added cost of this procedure. In fact, there are surgical complications associated with femtosecond assisted laser cataract surgery that were never reported with traditional cataract surgery. Patients should think long and hard before they pay extra to have this procedure performed.

Glaucoma is a very common condition today, and effects numerous patients in the Bucks County area. Glaucoma results when the pressure in the eye is elevated, and is a common cause of irreversible vision loss.
Glaucoma is usually controlled with topical eye drops, but this can become expensive over time and patients also forget to take their drops consistently. Many glaucoma drops are expensive to use on a regular basis and may not be completely covered by insurance plans.
Glaucoma laser treatment with SLT laser trabeculoplasty can help reduce or even eliminate the need for glaucoma drops. SLT laser is a safe and increasingly popular option for glaucoma patients. It is performed in an outpatient setting and usually takes about 5 minutes to perform.
