laser cataract surgeryExperience the gift of revitalized vision

Laser cataract surgery is a procedure that involves using a laser to extract a cloudy lens and subsequently replaces it with an artificial prescription lens, helping to restore clear vision. In decades past, the only way to carry out cataract surgery was manually with a scalpel. Technological advancements in laser surgery have enabled top-tier eye doctors like Dr. Shakir to achieve incredibly accurate results. Patients who undergo laser cataract surgery experience incredible improvements in their vision.

Patients plagued by the challenges of chronic floaters and the subsequent changes in their vision need not endure any longer. With expertise honed through countless successful interventions, the esteemed team at Coastal Eye is well-equipped to address this prevalent concern, working diligently to restore optimal clarity and visual harmony to the eyes of their valued patients.

Experience a revolution in vision correction with Custom Lens Replacement, also referred to as refractive lens exchange (RLE). This groundbreaking procedure involves the substitution of the eye's natural lens with a cutting-edge, transparent lens. With remarkable technological advancements at its core, RLE effectively addresses a wide range of refractive errors, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia. By minimizing or even eliminating the reliance on reading glasses and bifocals, this procedure empowers individuals to embrace a life of visual freedom. Furthermore, Custom Lens Replacement proactively prevents the development of future cataracts.
