Cataract Surgery


Cataract surgery is safer, faster, and better than ever. The surgery is performed by Dr. Liva at Saddle River Valley Surgical Center under topical anesthesia with intravenous sedation administered by a board certified anesthesiologist . The use of eyedrops to numb the eye avoids the additional risks inherent in using needle injections around the eye. A Leica microscope provides superb optics to give Dr.Liva the excellent visualization he needsto perform the operation more safely and avoid complications. A state-of-the-art phacoemulsification machine, the Alcon Infinity, offers microcoaxial phaco enabling removal of the cataract through tiny incisions. The highest quality intraocular lenses are implanted which can correct not only the clouding of the vision from the cataract but also other preexisting conditions such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia.
