Cataract Surgery at the Eye Center of Northern Colorado

Laser Based Cataract Surgery in Northern Colorado

The Eye Center of Northern Colorado was the first to bring laser-assisted cataract surgery to Colorado. Our LenSx® laser technology, paired with the ORA® System, ensures your surgery will be customized from start to finish. Our fellowship-trained cataract specialists offer a variety of replacement lens options to correct other common eye conditions like astigmatism and presbyopia (the need for reading glasses). Our goal is to help you regain the vision of your youth – even reducing or eliminating the need for glasses after surgery.


If you have been diagnosed with cataracts, that means your naturally clear eye lenses have developed a build-up of proteins. These proteins gradually clump together, causing your vision to become increasingly cloudy, dull, and yellowed. You can also experience glare from lights. If these symptoms have started to interfere with your life, it will be time for cataract surgery to remove the cloudy lens and replace it with a clear one.

Lens Options During Cataract Surgery

At the Eye Center of Northern Colorado, we offer several replacement lens options to meet your overall vision goals and lifestyle after cataract surgery. Multifocal lenses can provide a full range of clear vision, often reducing or eliminating the need for glasses. Toric lenses can correct preexisting astigmatism to improve distance vision. We’ll help you decide which lens would be right for you.

Restore Youthful Vision image

With clear vision restored, you will be able to return to the activities you enjoy – things like driving, hobbies, exercise, dining out with friends and more.

Increased Independence image

If you can see clearly, you are less likely to trip and fall over an unseen object or a change in terrain. Some studies have reported a significant decrease in the amount of falls in cataract surgery patients.

Studies have suggested that cataract surgery may actually increase your lifespan because clear vision can result in fewer medication mix-ups, improved quality of life, safer driving, etc.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cataract Surgery

The symptoms of cataracts include blurry vision, dull colors, glare from sunlight or lamps, and glare while night driving. Cataracts will eventually cause blindness if left untreated.
No. You cannot prevent cataracts from forming. This is a natural process that occurs to most people over age 60. After the clouding of the lens begins, it is impossible to return the lens to its original clear state with medications. Cataract surgery is the only way to improve your declining vision when you have cataracts.
The LenSx® laser allows our surgeons to automate some of the most challenging steps of cataract surgery using real-time, 3-D visualization for truly customized treatment. This results in better vision outcomes for our patients.
Optiwave Refractive Analysis (ORA) technology allows our doctors to provide real-time intraoperative measurements of your refractive error after the cloudy lens is removed – during surgery – so we can adjust the power of your replacement lens if necessary. This allows for a completely tailored procedure for you.
