Cataract Surgery

Dr. Mills is considered a top ophthalmologist for cataract surgery.  This common condition causes vision to become increasingly blurred, cloudy, and distorted.  During micro-incision cataract surgery, your cloudy natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens designed and intended to restore crisp, clear vision.  Mills Eye + Facial Surgery offers a selection of popular "Premium" intraocular lenses, including Symfony®, TECNIS® multifocal, Crystalens®, ReStor®, and many of these have versions designed to correct astigmatism.  These "Premium" lens implants are designed to reduce, and in many cases eliminate, the need for glasses following surgery.  Click the button below to learn more about cataracts.
