St. John’s Medical Center now offers cataract surgery with ophthalmologist Jamie Monroe, MD. It is an outpatient procedure, normally taking only a few hours, with most procedures lasting less than 15 minutes.
After surgery with traditional monofocal lenses, most people experience very good vision either at distance or at near. In most cases, the monofocal lens provides good distance vision for driving, walking, and some everyday activities. However, most people receiving monofocal lenses still require reading glasses or bifocals to have a full range of vision.
