How to Choose the Best Cataract Surgeon

Written by Lisa Marie Wark, MBA & Assoc.*

The eyes are extremely important and many of us consider our sight to be one of our most crucial senses, allowing us to take care of ourselves, loved ones, and enjoy the beauty of the world around us. However, despite the obvious significance of eyesight, thousands of people still regularly decide to undergo surgery on their eyes without conducting any research into their surgeon, simply because they feel the need to select the easiest, quickest, or cheapest option.

It may feel like a chore, but deciding who is going to perform your cataract surgery could be one of the most important decisions you make in your life, and selecting the ideal professional may not take long if you know what to look for.

Top Cataract Surgeons at Nevada Eye & Ear

Ensuring that you can approach your surgery with comfort and confidence means taking the time to do a little research into your doctor’s background. Nevada Eye & Ear’s website offers a comprehensive page dedicated to informing patients everything they may need to know about the doctors they will be trusting with their sight. For example, you can learn that Dr. Douglas C. Lorenz, a highly experienced, cataract surgeon at Nevada Eye & Ear received his medical degree at the University of Health Sciences in 1983 and has performed thousands of cataract surgeries. Furthermore, Surjeet Singh, MD received his Medical Doctor degree from Rosalind Franklin University School of Medicine and has worked under the direct supervision of many internationally recognized eye surgeons from the UCLA Jules Stein Eye Institute and Drew Medical Center. Dr. Singh specializes in cataract surgery and is one of the few surgeons that offers implantable Collamer lens placement for extremely nearsighted patients for whom laser vision correction is not an option.

Knowing where and when your surgeon obtained the education that they need to perform cataract surgery can help to put your mind at rest when you’re looking for the right surgeon to tackle the procedure. The more you learn about the doctor, the more likely you are to trust them.

Nevada Eye & Ear’s “Meet our doctors” page, tells patients more than just the fundamentals of where surgeons trained and received their degrees, it also informs them about the various prestigious awards that the individuals have earned, alongside their contributions to the medical community.
