Falls Church, Virginia -
Brusco Vision, a Falls Church, Virginia based LASIK eye surgeon, is reaching out to the wider community to share an article about refractive cataract surgery. Dr. Michael Brusco and his team use cutting edge equipment and technology (both diagnostic and therapeutic) to provide safe eye care and exceptional surgical results to their patients in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia regions.
Michael A. Brusco, MD, FACS, the founder and medical director of Brusco Vision, says, “As you grow older, you may find your eyes are no longer able to function the same as they did years ago. And if you are developing cataracts — which everyone does as they grow older — it can be a very difficult and very annoying prospect to deal with. However, you need not worry! We can help you turn back the clock and finally be rid of the burden of wearing glasses, readers, bifocals and trifocals!”
The solution is Refractive Cataract Surgery, an advanced treatment that offers patients a whole new world of improved vision beyond what traditional cataract surgery can offer. During the procedure, the patients’ cloudy lens (cataract) is replaced by a new artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL). These lens implants can be customized to meet specific visual needs and eliminate the need to wear glasses or readers. Refractive Cataract Surgery eliminates cataracts, thereby improving and helping to stabilize vision.
According to Brusco Vision, the cataract is lightly removed by an ultrasound device, and then the IOL is gently inserted into the eye. The intraocular lenses are able to bend incoming light through the pupil to focus it perfectly onto the retina, similar to how a contact lens works on the surface of the eye. Unlike contact lenses, the IOL is maintenance-free, never drying out or getting dirty.
Dr. Brusco says, “When you have the IOL, you don’t have to deal with the many inconveniences of using a contact lens. You don’t have to put it on every morning, you don’t have to worry about it getting lost. You can’t even develop an allergy to it over time, like some patients do with contact lenses. Patients state that they don’t even feel the presence of the new lens, and it is not noticeable to others either. IOL is a surefire way to treat your vision issues without making any changes to the outward appearance of your eyes.”
Intraocular lens surgery, and the surgical techniques involved, were first performed in 1949 but gained popularity during the 1980s. However, the ophthalmology field has come a long way since then, and refractive cataract surgery is the most advanced iteration of this proven vision correction procedure involving a foldable IOL with updated technology. Over 3 million cataract procedures are performed in the United States annually — it is a safe and proven procedure, and Brusco Vision is simply providing the best version of it.
Refractive cataract surgery is vastly superior to basic cataract surgery for a number of reasons. While basic surgery only has monofocal lenses available, refractive surgery offers multifocal, extended depth-of-focus and toric IOLs. Refractive cataract surgery also restores vision at near, intermediate and far distances to eliminate or reduce the need for readers or bifocals post-operatively, and patients have the option of corneal laser vision correction to optimize visual outcome if needed post-operatively, whereas patients who undergo basic surgery are often prescribed readers or bifocals (usually prescribed for distance and near vision).
Dr. Brusco’s services have earned him great praise from his patients. In a 5-Star Google review, F. Karim writes, “Dr. Brusco is truly the best LASIK surgeon. He is incredibly skilled, meticulous, detail oriented and strives to give each patient the very best care. What separates him from other surgeons is that he is incredibly personable. He truly listens to all of your concerns and will calm any nerves when going through the procedure. Most importantly his results are excellent. LASIK is life-changing, and I would not trust my eyes to anyone else. I highly recommend Dr. Brusco!”
