Information About Cataracts Services

Cataracts are a very natural part of aging. As we get older, the proteins in our natural lenses start to deteriorate and stick together. Unfortunately, this process leads to cataracts, which require professional treatment to reduce uncomfortable symptoms. At Kirk Eye Center in River Forest and Gurnee, IL, our board-certified ophthalmologists specialize in diagnosing and providing innovative treatment options. To treat your cataracts, we provide laser-assisted cataract technology and premium lenses, like Symfony, multifocal, or toric lenses. Please read through our list of services and schedule an appointment to learn more.

If your vision is cloudy or not as clear as it once was, cataract surgery may be able to improve your vision.

Traditional cataract surgery involves removing the cataract (cloudy lens) and replacing it with a new lens to provide patients with better eyesight.

Using innovative technology, laser cataract surgery precisely targets and removes cataracts to improve an individual's vision with minimal downtime.

The Light Adjustable Lens by RxSight® is an IOL that is customized to your vision goals using a series of UV light treatments after cataract surgery.

Free yourself of eyeglasses or contacts. Especially for those with astigmatism, premium IOLs are an ideal solution.

Multifocal lenses are a type of IOL implanted into the eye during cataract surgery, providing better vision at both close-up and far-away distances.
