About Laser Cataract Surgery
At The Eye Center of Southern Indiana, we serve Bloomington, IN, Ellettsville, Bedford, Columbus, and Seymor with the most advanced diagnosis and treatment methods available for cataract-related procedures. Cataracts are a clouding of the eye's natural lens that typically begin to develop after the age of 40. Because the lens itself cannot be repaired, cataract surgery involves replacing the natural lens with a synthetic IOL (intraocular lens). Laser cataract surgery is done with advanced technology that can chart out the surface of the eye to apply a precise, bladeless incision, greatly reducing the chances of infection. You can arrange an evaluation with R. Daniel Grossman, M.D. at his Bloomington, IN practice to learn whether you may be a good candidate for laser cataract surgery.
How Does Laser Cataract Surgery Work?
Around 30 – 45 minutes before laser cataract surgery, a professional team member thoroughly numbs the patient’s eyes by administering specialized eye drops. Laser cataract surgery is similar to traditional cataract surgery, but we implement state-of-the-art laser technology to identify the perfect incision site, make a safe and sterile incision, and remove the clouded lens. After the cataract is removed, your ophthalmologist will insert the artificial lens. Laser cataract surgery technology creates excellent outcomes with a smoother recovery period, thanks to the technology's extraordinary capabilities. Laser cataract surgery is generally a brief outpatient procedure completed in less than 30 minutes. The healing period for laser cataract surgery ranges from 4 – 8 weeks, depending on the patient. As part of a consultation at The Eye Center of Southern Indiana, one of our highly trained ophthalmologists will be able to go over any prospective limitations, in addition to each patient’s most effective treatment options. Dr. Grossman asks that all laser cataract surgery patients come back in for a few follow-up exams to keep an eye on the healing process.
"My husband had a chalazion removed from his lower eye lid, and we had a great experience! Everyone was so friendly, from the receptionist out front to Dr. Andrew Huck! It was a quick process, and Dr. Huck walked us through each step of the procedure. He made us feel so comfortable and cared for. Thank you for all you guys do!!"- E.W. / Yelp / Oct 06, 2021
"They are very thorough in caring for new patients. They are conscious of covid 19 protocols. The practice has both ophthalmologist as well as optometrists. In case you need eye surgery, the surgery center is on the lower level. As a new patient I appreciate what they have to offer for eye care."- M.H. / Yelp / Mar 25, 2021

"I just had my LASIK eye surgery done with Dr. Mackey at the Eye Center yesterday. I recommend it highly, and wish I had done it sooner. The staff was as sweet as can be, and I felt so comfortable the entire time. I would really like to thank Dr.Mackey, Dr Gray and Melissa for taking such good care of me. There was virtually no wait times which cut down on my nerves substantially. The procedure itself was completely painless and was over before I knew it. I’m super pleased with my experience:)"- C.E. / Yelp / Dec 04, 2015
