We are very excited that you have chosen to see Dr. Salib at Orange County Eye Institute and our staff for your cataract evaluation! We look forward to seeing you soon. If for any reason you need to reschedule, please inform our office at least (3) business days prior to your visit. If you wear contact lenses, please discontinue their use for at least three weeks prior to your appointment.
Enclosed is some general information about our practice and the advanced intraocular lenses that we offer our cataract patients. Our goal is to provide you with as much information as you need, so you can make an informed decision about the vision you would like to have for the rest of your life. We encourage you to review this material and to please fill out these attached questionnaires prior to your visit so that we may answer any questions that you might have.
During surgery, Dr. Salib uses the latest in laser-assisted cataract surgery for the most precise and modern method of performing cataract surgery. In fact, he was one of the earliest adopters of this groundbreaking technology, making him also one of the most experienced in its use.
As a cataract patient, you have several options for your lens replacement. We are proud to offer the newest in multifocal technology, the Panoptix Trifocal Intraocular lens (IOL), which has given patients the ability to have a clear vision for the full range of distances--far, near and intermediate. We are also excited to offer the Crystalens®AO and TRULIGN® Toric (flexible, accomodating IOL’s), which are designed to use the natural focusing ability of the eye to provide you a broader range of sharp vision. Additionally, the TECNIS Symfony® IOL is an extended depth of focus IOL we can offer to allow for a more broad range of vision. We also offer the ReSTOR®IOL and TECNIS® Multifocal IOL’s, which are designed to offer performance at both far and near. If you have astigmatism, a Toric IOL would help sharpen your vision. So many choices—but no need to worry—Dr. Salib will give you his expert opinion and guidance in regards to the surgery and IOL choice.
Lastly, you will receive a call from us to remind you about your appointment. In the interim, please contact me should you need any information prior to your appointment. Thank you for trusting your eyes to Dr. Salib at Orange County Eye Institute.
