Cataract Advice from Dr. Weinstock

Robert J, Weinstock, MD - The Eye Institute of South Florida

Leaders in Cataract Care

Cataract surgery has entered a new era of unprecedented growth in precision technology replacing a generation that was once considered advanced. As newer techniques continue to shorten the recovery time and improve visual results, patients are able to see more clearly, sooner, with less pain and return to their normal activities much quicker. At the Eye Institute we embrace these advances and take pride knowing that our patients will receive the best care possible.

  • Our physicians helped pioneer the modern cataract procedure –the bimanual microincisional technique.
  • The development of newer intraocular lens implants allow our surgeons to offer advanced lens options such as the Crystalens, to help patients see clearly at a full range of distance.
  • One of the first facilities to incorporate into its operating room the TrueVision System, a visualization platform that uses a heads-up digital display in 3-D.
  • Our surgical facility was one of the few centers in the world to use the new ORA System, wavefront-guided technology that provides real-time data to optimize lens placements, determine lens strength, and correct astigmatism during surgery.
  • We were among the first facilities to introduce the femtosecond laser that replaces some of those key manual steps of cataract surgery typically performed by hand with the accuracy of computer-guided controls.
