As an ophthalmologist dedicated to providing outstanding care, Dr. Frantz is continually looking for ways to better serve his patients. He is thrilled and honored to lead the way in bringing Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery to southwest Florida. Frantz EyeCare is the first and only practice in our area to utilize the most technologically advanced option for cataract surgery – the LenSx Laser, a bladeless computer-controlled laser that allows Dr. Frantz to plan and perform your surgery to exacting, individualized specification not attainable with other surgical methods.
At the Frantz Cataract Center at Frantz EyeCare, our goal is to provide the right cataract treatment for your individual lifestyle. You can now choose to have either traditional surgery or Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery with the LenSx Laser. The advanced, precision-based LenSx Laser operates with unmatched accuracy and computer control, helping us customize the procedure to your eye. By adding computer control to key steps of your cataract surgery, the LenSx Laser helps ensure the highest-precision surgical incisions. It is unquestionably the most technologically advanced option for cataract patients.
We also offer a great choice of cataract lenses including the ReSTOR multifocal lens, which will greatly reduce your dependence on glasses following surgery. The ReSTOR lens allows you to read a book, drive a car, and play golf or tennis with increased freedom from glasses. Other options include a Toric IOL for astigmatism and a standard single-vision monofocal lens.
Whichever option is best for you, cataract surgery is virtually pain free, and the actual lens implantation can be completed in minutes at our Suncoast Surgery Center adjacent to our office in Fort Myers.
Traditional cataract surgery is covered by Medicare and most insurances. If you choose to have Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery, it is considered a refractive procedure. We can discuss out-of-pocket charges and flexible payment plans.
