Cataract Removal & Lens Options


When we get older, the tissues in our eyes begin to break down and it causes the lens to become clouded. This clouding of the eye’s lens is known as cataracts and it scatters the light that passes through, causing blurred vision. If cataracts are significantly affecting your daily life, it may be time to have cataract removal surgery.

At Eye Physicians of Northampton, we offer a variety of cataract removal and lens implant options to choose from. Even standard cataract surgery is a fairly quick outpatient procedure performed at both our Amherst and Florence locations.

Basic Cataract Removal
Involves removing the clouded lens and replacing it with a new, clear
lens, resulting in good vision with the use of glasses

Eye Physicians of Northampton offers multiple lens implant options or IOLs for those that are wanting to be less dependent on glasses and are willing to pay for optimal vision correction.

Single Focus Lens Implants
Provides excellent vision at one distance, still requiring glasses to
achieve full range of vision

Lens Implants for Astigmatism
Uses a Toric IOL to correct both astigmatism and the cataract,
providing good distance vision and the use of reading glasses.

Multifocal Lens Implants
Provides clear vision at near, intermediate, and far distances,
reducing or eliminating the use of glasses

These advanced implants may significantly decrease your dependency on glasses! Call Eye Physicians of Northampton at 413-584-6422 today to schedule a cataract consultation to find out which lens implant is right for you.
