A cataract is the natural thickening and cloudiness of the intraocular lens that causes blurred vision, halos and glare for patients at various distances. Dr. Matt Wesson performs outpatient cataract surgery at both the Tupelo Surgery Center, our Medicare-approved on-site surgery center and at Northeast Mississippi Medical Center.
With today's advanced lens implant technology, the patient may now choose from various styles of lens implants from traditional implants to more premium, focusable or multifocal implants to reduce the dependance on glasses for distance and near vision after cataract surgery. Some patients may even benefit from toric lens implants to reduce astigmatism at the time of cataract surgery.
Among the premium lens implants used at Wesson and Mothershed Eye Center are Alcon's Restor, Bausch and Lomb's Crystalens and the Tecnis Multifocal. To find out if you are a candidate for one of these lens implants prior to your cataract surgery, please call our office.
