Choosing a
Cataract Surgeon

Finding the right cataract surgeon is a crucial first step in resolving your condition. While many Los Angeles eye doctors may offer the procedure, you want to choose one you can trust to safely and effectively handle your surgery and preserve your eyesight.

When selecting a surgeon, it’s important to assess the practice as a whole, starting with the doctor. We strongly recommend looking for a skilled surgeon with a prestigious educational background, many years of experience, updated certifications and a stellar reputation. In addition, make sure he or she is willing to offer you personalized attention. At some practices, you can feel like just another pair of eyes. Make sure the doctor you choose is available to return your phone calls, offer guidance and answer all of your questions in depth.

In addition to the doctor’s credentials, evaluate the entire facility. Look for a clean and modern office with state-of-the-art technology. It’s ideal if the equipment used during surgery is new, because it shows that the practice is committed to investing in the safest and most effective surgical methods.

And finally, look for a friendly, well-trained support staff. When visiting the office, assess the behaviors and attitudes of the receptionist, nurses and other employees. Do they seem competent and interested in their roles? Do they smile at you warmly when you enter the room? You’ll be spending a lot of time interacting with these people, so make sure they take pride in their work and make you feel comfortable.

Wow, what a huge difference a short 15 minutes makes! Having spent so much of my life helpless without my glasses and inconvenienced by an expensive contacts routine -- suddenly I could see, and with minimal down-time.
