Comprehensive Cataract Surgery Services in Santa Monica, California
Experience the benefits of cataract surgery at Santa Monica Eye Medical Group.
Cataract surgery is a safe and effective procedure that restores clear vision for individuals with cataracts. Cataracts occur when the natural lens of the eye becomes cloudy, causing blurred vision and difficulty seeing in low-light conditions. At Santa Monica Eye Medical Group, we offer comprehensive cataract surgery services to help you regain optimal vision and enhance your quality of life.
This procedure, which can be billed to insurance, involves manually removing the cataract and inserting a mono-focal lens IOL. However, near or intermediate vision may still require additional correction.
Utilizing cutting-edge technology, FLACS offers precise and customized treatment. Please note that this procedure is not covered by insurance.
We provide various options, including Presbyopic, Multifocal, Trifocal, and full depth of focus lens IOLs, addressing your specific vision requirements. Astigmatic correction with Toric IOL lenses is also available. Insurance does not cover these procedures, but they significantly reduce the need for glasses or post-surgery correction.
This procedure, which can be billed to insurance, addresses posterior capsule opacity or scar (PCO), commonly referred to as a secondary cataract. It ensures clear vision following cataract surgery.

● Find it challenging to read or perform close-up tasks.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
No, cataract surgery is typically painless as it is performed under local anesthesia. Patients may experience mild discomfort during the healing process.
Most patients experience improved vision within a few days, with full recovery typically achieved within a few weeks.
While cataract surgery is commonly performed on one eye at a time, your ophthalmologist will assess your individual case and recommend the most suitable approach.
The results of cataract surgery are permanent. Once the clouded lens is removed and replaced with an IOL, it will not develop cataracts again.
Cataract surgery is considered safe, but like any surgical procedure, it carries some risks. Your ophthalmologist will discuss these risks and address any concerns you may have.
