modern cataract surgery

Modern cataract surgery can provide patients with more than just distance vision. We now have advanced-technology multifocal lens implants that can provide a full range of vision – near, far, and in between.

Dr. Pinke is specially trained in the use of all lens implants and individualizes the choice of implants based on each patient’s personal needs.
