Jan Stahl, M.D.

Jan Stahl"I could say that what attracted me to the field of ophthalmology was that I was a physics major in college and loved the physics of optics and lasers and all the high tech devices we get to use, or that I love operating on and examining such a magnificent organ as the eye and this would all be true. The real treat, however, is that sight is one of the most important of the senses and restoring it for people is so incredibly satisfying that I couldn’t imagine a more rewarding occupation."

Cataract surgery is a highly successful surgery in helping restore vision. Cataract surgery involves replacing your natural cloudy lens with a clear intraocular lens (IOL). An IOL is an artificial lens that is implanted inside your eye during cataract surgery. Our surgeons are trained and experienced in all the IOL choices including premium IOLs. If you are located in the Denver, Lakewood and Colorado area and are interested in cataract surgery and IOLs, please contact us today!

At Denver Eye Surgeons, we are pleased to offer cataract surgery at our onsite, outpatient Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC). Our surgical center offers patients a comfortable, friendly and supportive environment for undergoing cataract removal.
