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.

For more information, please contact our office and one of our staff members will be happy to assist you in setting up a personalized cataract evaluation.
