How do We Remove Your Cataracts?
Cataracts cannot be treated with eye drops or medication and they will not improve or heal on their own. Surgery is the only option. The good news is that more than 2 million men and women undergo cataract surgery every year, making the procedure one of the most common and successful medical procedures in the U.S. today. The surgical team members at Gulf Coast Eye Institute are experienced cataract surgeons. Our McAllen and Harlingen ocular specialists have performed thousands of successful, life-changing cataract procedures, using traditional and advanced laser techniques.
