Cataracts

Learn how cataract surgery can help improve your vision!
Cataracts are the most common vision problem in adults over 60. Worldwide, cataract surgery is the most common surgery performed, and the one with the highest success rate-over 98%! It has even been proven in a large scientific study that cataract surgery can increase your life span by lowering the risk of falling and sustaining a hip fracture! Together, Dr. Shechter and Dr. Wilton have performed more than 10,000 cases in their careers.
 
At Phoenixville Eye Care Specialists, we pride ourselves in offering state-of-the-art technology in a traditional, highly personalized setting. Surgery is performed as an outpatient at one of our two facilities, Surgery Center at Limerick and the award-winning Physicians Care Surgical Hospital. Dr. Shechter and Dr. Wilton are proud to be founding physicians of PCSH. Typical surgeries are painless and take about 15 minutes under mild anesthesia. Patients are back home in no more than a few hours and recovery is easy with minimal restrictions. Usually no preoperative lab work or testing is needed.
 
With today's techniques, a majority of patients will find that they will have reduced need for glasses and often will only need reading glasses afterward. Patients with glaucoma are usually good candidates for surgery and studies have shown that patients often require less or no glaucoma medication after their cataract surgery.
 
Dr. Shechter and Dr. Wilton use the latest, state-of-the-art implants and equipment at both facilities and work with highly skilled OR staff and anesthetists. The doctors typically do all the postoperative care themselves but are happy to work with a patient's own referring optometrist. Our surgical coordinator, Mindy Brown x 134, is available to answer your questions at any time.
