Cataract Surgery

The passage of time brings both age and wisdom, it’s inevitable that your vision undergoes changes too. The occurrence of cataracts, the clouding of the natural lens, is a shared experience for many, including yourself, as the years progress.

Now stands as the opportune moment to address and enhance your vision, liberating yourself from the reliance on readers, bifocals, and trifocals. The hazy lens that has obscured your sight can be replaced with a corrective alternative, rendering the need for such aids obsolete. Allow us to guide you in reclaiming the clarity of your vision and essentially turning back the hands of time!

What is a cataract?

Cataracts, a natural part of aging, develop in the lens proteins of the eye, causing cloudiness and vision decline. Gradually impacting daily activities like reading and driving, they pose safety risks such as impaired night vision and depth perception. Luxor Eye Institute offers advanced laser cataract surgery to rejuvenate vision, ensuring a safer and more vibrant lifestyle.

A Modern Approach to Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgeons, like Dr. Kouchouk, employ advanced laser technology to replace cloudy lenses with crystal-clear, biocompatible ones. This quick, 10-minute procedure offers lasting results, often making patients feel like their eyes are rejuvenated by over two decades. Cataract surgery, a common and evolved practice since the 1950s, is a precise and personalized solution for addressing vision issues.

1. Dr. Kouchouk creates a tiny opening to reach the eye’s natural lens, which has become cloudy and turned into a cataract.

2. He breaks up and removes the cloudy lens through the tiny opening.

3.The cloudy natural lens is replaced with a crystal-clear, biocompatible, artificial lens.


In just 10 minutes per eye, the procedure yields a lasting result, with patients reporting restored youthful vision, making their eyes feel 20+ years younger.

What is “Advanced” Cataract Surgery?

Traditional cataract surgery involves a blade and a fixed-focal lens, often requiring readers or bifocals. Dr. Kouchouk recommends Advanced Cataract Surgery, a bladeless, laser-assisted technique with customizable multifocal lenses. This technology enables clear vision at various distances, potentially reducing or eliminating the need for readers or bifocals. During your evaluation, Dr. Kouchouk will thoroughly discuss these options for an informed decision about your vision and health.

Medical insurance can offset some cataract surgery costs, contingent on copays and deductibles. Vision correction, extending beyond insurance coverage, is an investment in reducing or eliminating the reliance on readers or bifocals for daily activities. For those without medical insurance, interest-free financing plans are available for refractive cataract surgery.

Cataract questions? We've got answers.

Are cataracts covered by insurance?

Most insurance companies will cover the cost of basic manual cataract surgery, minus co-pays and deductibles. We will gladly check with your insurance company to determine your coverage prior to the surgery. If you choose to have your vision corrected during cataract surgery (through one of our Advanced Cataract Surgery Plans), insurance will not cover that part of the procedure. Many patients take advantage of one of our affordable payment plans, an FSA or HSA, or even credit card for the vision correction portion of the cataract surgery procedure.

What's the recovery process like?

Many people are able to resume normal activities as early as the morning after cataract surgery. You may want to restrict any vigorous activities for a few days.

When should you have cataracts removed?

If your cataracts are starting to affect your normal activities such as night driving, seeing the television or reading, it is time to consider laser cataract surgery. If you are considering laser vision correction, you do not have to wait until your cataracts become problematic to have them removed and replaced with corrective IOLs.

Do cataracts grow back?

No. With cataract surgery, the cloudy lens in your eye is removed and replaced with a crystal-clear lens. In some cases, residual microscopic cells can grow behind the new intraocular lens implant months or years later. This may result in blurry vision that can easily be corrected with a brief laser treatment that removes those cells and restores clear vision.

Is cataract surgery painful?

Local anesthesia keeps cataract surgery patients comfortable and pain-free during cataract surgery. At most, there may be a sensation of slight pressure. The most common thing we hear from patients following cataract surgery – “Wow, it’s already done?!” Patients can’t believe how quick and comfortable the procedure is.

Does cataract surgery last a lifetime?

Yes, it does. Unlike an artificial heart valve or joint, there are no moving parts that can wear out. Implants are designed to last a lifetime and are made of materials that will not irritate your eyes.

What happens if cataract is left untreated?

If left untreated, cataracts can cause blindness. There is no need to delay cataract surgery since waiting can cause the procedure to be slightly more difficult. Besides, you will be ecstatic about your clear vision.

Can I watch TV after cataract surgery?

The best thing you can do after cataract surgery is rest your eyes for a few hours. TV watching, reading and other relaxing activities may be resumed later that same day of surgery.

What is the first sign of cataracts?

One of the most common signs of cataracts is glare and halos with night driving. Cataracts also cause blurry vision and difficulty getting just the right prescription for your glasses. If you experience these symptoms, there is no need to delay cataract surgery.

See your future clearly after Cataract Surgery.
