Cataract Services in Raleigh-Durham
If cataracts have limited your ability to enjoy the things you used to love, cataract surgery from the Raleigh-Durham eye surgery team at Kelly Eye Center can provide you with restored vision and a brand-new outlook on life. While all human eyes share the same basic structure, every eye is a bit different in terms of size, depth, curvature of cornea and other key features. Every eye must be carefully measured and mapped prior to cataract surgery. These images, measurements and data they provide are then used to plan and perform a personalized treatment.
Dr. Michael Kelly, our renowned cataract surgeon, offers the following types of cataract surgery to our patients in Raleigh-Durham:
LenSx® Laser Cataract Surgery

Dropless Cataract Surgery
This new form of cataract surgery deposits a sterile, compounded formulation of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medication into the back of the eye. By delivering the medicine in a time-released manner, dropless cataract surgery helps fight infection and inflammation during the important recovery period. In most cases, it also omits the need for purchasing and using prescription eye drops. Learn more about Dropless Cataract Surgery at Kelly Eye Center. ››

- Your vision doesn’t improve sufficiently when wearing glasses
Cataract surgery is generally a simple outpatient procedure with little discomfort, requiring only a few hours and a topical anesthetic. The goal of the operation is to break the cloudy lens into pieces, remove the pieces and insert a man made lens.
Statistics show that 70% of all people over the age of 75 will develop cataracts, but you don’t have to let cataracts take over your life. Contact the team at Kelly Eye Center today to learn how traditional or laser cataract surgery can benefit you!
