Cataract is a medical condition in which the lens of the eye becomes progressively cloudy causing blurred vision. The initial symptoms of cataracts include glare from light sources at night and a pronounced reduction of visual clarity in low-light situations.
Are you looking for the best cataract surgeon in Los Angeles? Our talented team at Laser Eye Center™ is here to help. Our eye surgeons have years of experience quickly and painlessly removing cataracts to help improve the vision of our patients in Southern California.
Cataract surgery has undergone major advances in recent years since the days your mom and dad had the procedure. Part of the normal aging process, a cataract occurs when the natural lens in your eye becomes cloudy; and, if left untreated, a cataract can lead to blindness.
The procedure to remove cataracts is fast, painless, and has a high rate of success with a 98% patient satisfaction rate. Cataract surgery is performed in the comfort of our top of the line facility and is fully customized to meet your unique visual needs. Most important for you, the treatment is completely painless, lasts less than 15 minutes, and most patients see significantly better the very next day!
The treatment entails removing the lens inside the eye that has become cloudy and replacing it with an artificial lens (called an “intraocular lens” or “IOL”). There are various IOLs available to treat myopia, hyperopia, as well as the multifocal IOL for presbyopia and astigmatism, offering you the full range of vision and without the need for glasses!
Laser Eye Center™ ranks in the top three for premium cataract surgery. We have invested in the most sophisticated laser cataract platform that combines computer-controlled laser technology with advanced 3D-imaging enabling us to precisely determine the size and shape of the incision as well as enhance premium lens placement to deliver the highest standards of accuracy and safety.

The number one question asked by our cataract patients: Are all cataract procedures created equal? Our response: Absolutely not! Since cataract treatment is a one-time only procedure (in other words the cataract does not return), it is imperative to study the various treatment options available and choose a trustworthy center that has the technical capabilities and experience to address your unique needs to restore your vision.
Laser Cataract Platform
For patients in need of cataract surgery, our Los Angeles-based laser eye surgeons of Laser Eye Center™ proudly offer the Catalys Precision Laser System. This cutting-edge technology allows for laser assisted cataract surgery that includes liquid optics with an integral guidance system for the surgeon. This differentiates us from other cataract centers that deploy traditional or standard techniques, which involve using a hand-held blade.
Laser assisted cataract surgery provides a predictable, noninvasive technique to an age-old problem. The advanced features of the Catalys system allows our surgeons to deliver quality results, time and time again. Our platform uses a proprietary 3D imaging system to map the surface of the eye, allowing our surgeon to customize treatment for our patient. As such, the femtosecond laser pulses are delivered to the eye with extraordinary precision. This system also provides a gentle dock for the patient, minimizing rise in eye pressure during the surgery and lessening ocular redness after the surgery. The result is enhanced safety, greater precision, and faster recovery time.
Intraocular lenses (IOLs)
Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are implants that are placed inside the eye to replace the eye’s natural lens when it is removed during cataract surgery. Historically, the treatment for cataracts was based on a one-size-fits all approach, wherein a standard single-focus or standard lens was implanted. This means that distance vision could be improved with the IOL, but reading glasses were still necessary to see up close.
At Laser Eye Center™, our state-of-the-art cataract technology platform includes an extensive premium lens offering such as the PanOptix® IOL. We offer a wide variety of premium IOLs from which to choose depending on your unique lifestyle and specific visual needs. Our multi- and tri-focal lenses unlock crisp vision at all distances (distance, intermediate, and near) and in all light conditions, even treating astigmatism which was not possible in the past. In contrast to basic single vision IOLs typically covered by Medicare and other types of health insurance, our premium lens offering is redefining our patients’ quality of life as you can now enjoy clear and quality vision at all ranges without the assistance of glasses! What does this all mean for you? Independent and quality vision awaits you!
We have teamed up with Johnson & Johnson’s Search Results CATALYS® Precision Laser System and Alcon’s PanOptix® IOL Lens to help restore the vision of your 30s free of any visual aids.
1. ARE ALL CATARACT PROCEDURES CREATED EQUAL?
Absolutely not! Initially, the treatment for cataracts was based on a one-size-fits all approach, wherein a standard single-focus lens was implanted. However, at Laser Eye Center™ we offer a variety of cutting edge lens types that we have termed ‘Designer Lenses’ so that you may regain clear vision at all distances and light conditions.
2. SHOULD YOU WAIT TO HAVE CATARACT SURGERY?
No! As cataracts will continue to worsen over time, the result is progressively declining vision with the potential for blindness. With today’s most advanced methods, favorable outcomes from treatment of cataracts are achieved in 98% of cases.
3. HOW IMPORTANT IS EXPERIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY?
Since cataract treatment is a one-time only procedure (in other words the cataract does not return), it is imperative to study the varied treatments available and choose a trustworthy center that has the technical capabilities and experience to address your unique needs.
