Delayed Gratification: Your Superpower to Success



Dr. Justo explains the basics of cataracts and cataract surgery options. Cataract surgery involves removing the clouded lens and replacing it with a synthetic lens called an intraocular lens (IOL), which is available in a variety of types and strengths. Dr. Justo's goal is to provide education to patients so they can make informed decisions about their treatment.

[00:00:00.000] In a cataract procedure, [00:00:02.400] what we are doing is, [00:00:04.080] we're essentially removing that clouded lens from behind the pupil, [00:00:08.400] and then we're replacing it [00:00:10.120] with a synthetic lens called an Intraocular Lens Implant, [00:00:14.160] also known as an IOL. [00:00:16.840] Please know that there are many, many different options these days, [00:00:20.520] and we'll help you navigate those options. [00:00:23.360] Our goal is to customize the surgery for you, educate you, give you options, [00:00:30.040] and try to achieve the best outcome that we possibly can. [00:00:33.600] It is so gratifying to see our patients [00:00:36.600] who have enjoyed newly found vision, beautiful colors, beautiful detail, [00:00:42.400] patients who have regained their ability to do artistic work, [00:00:45.760] who have regained their ability to drive, [00:00:48.160] who have regained their ability to just simply go back to work [00:00:52.600] and enjoy their life. [00:00:54.160] Now that I'm well into my fourth decade of performing refractive cataract surgery, [00:01:00.880] I cannot tell you how proud I am of the results that we achieved, [00:01:06.640] the team behind you, not just myself, but our entire team [00:01:10.720] who really works extra hard to try to help you achieve [00:01:14.320] the outcome that you desire. [00:01:16.840] We look forward to seeing you, and thanks for listening.
