Near and distance vision cataract surgery

Dr Viki Andersons and Associate Professor Michael Goggin continue to offer cataract surgery that assists with both distance and near vision after recovery.  The use of multifocal intraocular lenses for suitable patients remains one of their particular…

Treatment for astigmatism at the time of cataract surgery

Astigmatism is a failure of focus of the eye caused by the surfaces in the eye that focus the light for vision being oval instead of spherical.  It is usually managed by use of contact lenses, glasses or laser vision correction.  If it is present in…
