Cataract Surgery Orlando

There’s a reason that Magruder Laser Vision has been “Best in Orlando” for over 17 straight years. We are the Center of Excellence for Modern Cataract Surgery in Orlando, helping you restore your vision to help you do what you enjoy the most.

Orlando’s Only Comprehensive Center of Excellence for Cataract Surgery

Modern cataract surgery is not a one-size-fits-all procedure. We specialize in customizing your procedure to your eyes & vision goals. State-of-the-art technology makes laser assisted cataract surgery safer and more effective at achieving crystal clear vision than traditional cataract surgery.

We are the only center in orlando to offer the entire spectrum of lens implants, laser cataract surgery and I.V.-free cataract surgery.

Let’s review some of the details of what makes this procedure at Magruder Laser Vision a world-class experience.

What makes Advanced Laser Cataract Surgery at MLV Special?

In a word… Quality.

Since our founding, Magruder Laser Vision’s mission has been able to deliver the absolute highest quality of care in cataract & refractive surgery…. That means that instead of spending our time trying to do a little bit of everything in eye care, we focus all of our energy on this small area. We are dedicated to being a specialty practice, and our experienced & dedicated team takes tremendous pride in delivering the highest quality vision correction procedures that modern medicine makes possible.

While some surgeons rely on technology from decades ago… Would you ever consider using a cell phone from 20 years ago? Should you settle for that kind of technology when it comes to your eyes?

Better Than Traditional Cataract Surgery

Computer-guided laser cataract systems make modern cataract surgery more precise and consistent than the human hand can ever be for the delicate steps of this vision correction procedure. This technology has revolutionized cataract surgery allowing for safer surgery and better vision afterward for each patient.

We are Central Florida’s most experienced laser cataract surgery practice. Moreover, our surgeons have worked to help design the current and future generations of cataract systems and treatment.

I.V.-Free Treatment

We are Orlando’s only “IV-free” cataract surgery center. That’s right… No poking at your veins is necessary for most patients. The quick and minimally invasive nature of modern laser cataract surgery allows the procedure to be performed comfortably with oral sedatives… so no IV is needed for the vast majority of our patients.

State-Of-The-Art Begins And Ends Here.

Modern cataract surgery has advanced tremendously over the past 30 years. Like most areas of medicine and technology, you want to take advantage of the improvements in safety and vision outcomes that new technology provides.

Our surgeons are sought-after consultants by industry leaders to help design & develop the latest vision correction technology. From state-of-the-art lens implants to laser, our team is involved with these state-of-the-art technologies from the start. For our patients, that means we have expertise in treating cataracts like no other and can use that knowledge to customize your procedure to your eyes and lifestyle.

We pride ourselves on leading the way in eye health development. Our surgeons are active consultants to leaders in the eye care industry helping develop & design the next generation of technology to cater to each patient.

What Steps Are Involved With Laser Cataract Surgery?

There are 3 major steps to treat cataracts for each patient after a diagnosis has been made.

A Corneal Incision is Made.

The first step in the process is to make an incision in the cornea, as this incision is what allows us to gain access to the interior of the eye.

An Anterior Capsulotomy is Done.

Once the incision is made, we must remove the clear capsule that surrounds the eye’s natural lens. By removing this capsule through an anterior capsulotomy, we gain direct access to the cataract.

An Intraocular Lens Replaces The Natural Lens.

Now the laser is used to soften the cataract up, breaking it down into small, soft pieces. We then replace the natural lens with an intraocular lens implant.

It can take as little as 20-minutes to complete the surgery.

Leading The Way

If your eye doctor doesn’t offer certain types of lens implants or lasers, then you won’t be able to get it… even if it’s the best technology for your eyes. As the only practice in Orlando to offer all of the advanced technology lens implants, here are just a few examples of how Magruder Laser Vision has led the way in Central Florida:

  • First Light Adjustable Lens implant
  • First Alcon Vivity lens implant
  • First Rayner RayOne EMV lens implant
  • Most experienced laser cataract surgeons
  • First IV-free cataract surgery suite
