Who Can Have Surgery

Almost everyone with a visually significant cataract who is hampered in his or her daily activities can undergo small incision phacoemulsification cataract surgery with intraocular lens implantation by Dr. Shingleton. Age is not a limiting factor, and general medical issues, such as diabetes, are rarely a problem because surgery is quick, safe and performed on an outpatient basis. Dr. Shingleton sees many patients with glaucoma and the vast majority of these patients can also undergo cataract surgery with lens implantation.
