Cataract Surgery

Treatment of cataracts in Honolulu

They say that life begins at 40, and for the most part, they're right! One of the downsides to making it this far though, is that you're now at a higher risk for developing cataracts. Cataracts are a leading cause of blindness for those past middle age. Fortunately, things don't have to get that bad. Dr.  Ming Chen, M.D., MSc, F.A.C.S. is one of Honolulu, HI's leading cataract treatment specialists.

15 minutes to better vision

The prospect of having cataract surgery is bound to be a little nerve-wracking. Dr. Ming Chen, M.D., MSc, F.A.C.S. understands.

Fortunately, today's cataract surgery options can have you back to your old self in no time! Using a topical anesthesia (read: no needles), your doctor will remove your clouded lens and implant a clear artificial lens. The entire procedure takes about 15 minutes, and most patients report restored vision in a matter of a couple of weeks. 

ORange looks great on you

Dr. Ming Chen, M.D., MSc, F.A.C.S. is the only ophthalmologist in Hawaii using the ORange Custom Cataract System.

By directing a beam of low-intensity laser light into the affected eye, your doctor is able to get a more accurate measurement of your eye's characteristics. This helps your surgeon determine how strong a lens you need, which helps ensure a more positive outcome after your cataract surgery. 

The not-so-warm fuzzies

There are so many beautiful things to see in Hawaii. It would be a shame to let cataracts take away one single glorious sunset.

If you're experiencing blurred, cloudy or filmy vision, your night vision is deteriorating, or bright sunlight bothers you, cataracts could be the cause. Make an appointment with Ming Chen, M.D., MSc, F.A.C.S. right away!
