• Changes in your vision such as difficulty in driving, halos around lights or even the need for reading glasses could mean your vision may be affected by a cataract. It's important to know you have options.

    At New England Eye Center, we now offer the option of laser cataract surgery with the Catalys Precision Laser System. The powerful combination of our advanced lens implant options and laser cataract surgery means we can provide near, intermediate and distance vision, and treat your astigmatism at the same time.

  • A cataract is a common condition in which the normally clear lens of the eye becomes increasingly cloudy. Compared to vision with a clear lens, your vision with a cataract may look fuzzy, colors might be muted and you could experience difficulty reading signs while driving at night.

  • Many patients are still candidates for traditional cataract surgery and will have excellent results, but it's important to know you have options. While traditional cataract surgery is considered safe and has a high success rate, the traditional procedure is performed using handheld instruments. Laser cataract surgery with the CATALYS now offers the physician and patient the advantage of replacing the traditional handheld instruments with the precision of a laser. Using CATALYS the surgeon can provide you with a highly customized, more accurate and gentle treatment. The CATALYS® Precision Laser System has been successfully used on thousands of patients and is now available in our Waltham Surgisite location.
