Advance Cataract Surgery at AIO


Lisa Cibik, MD, FACS and John Nairn, MD, leading cataract surgeons, are part of the many generations of AIO surgeons who have performed over 200,000 cataract surgeries. They are committed to providing the highest standard of eye care, utilizing the newest technology available for cataract surgery, which include Laser Assisted and Dropless Cataract Surgery with advanced intraocular lenses (IOLs).

Laser Cataract Surgery
AIO was the first surgical practice in Western Pennsylvania to offer Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery, with the acquisition of the FDA- approved Femtosecond Laser.   While laser technology was new to cataract surgery, prior to that it had been used for over a decade in LASIK surgery.  Since 2012 AIO has performed over 8,000 surgeries using the Laser, which offers an image-guided, computer-controlled precision to the surgeon while making an opening into the lens, creating self-sealing corneal incisions, correcting astigmatism, and fragmenting the lens, all using the laser before entering the eye to remove the cataract.  

"Dropless" Cataract Surgery
Since January 2016, AIO has completed almost 1,000 "Dropless" cataract procedures.  As many know, traditionally prescribed drops, prior to and after surgery, are often the most cumbersome challenge associated with this surgical experience. Dropless cataract surgery helps to eliminate or reduce the burden of drops as well as provide convenience and cost-savings.

Dr. Cibik is thrilled with this defining moment for ophthalmology, "The introduction of Dropless cataract surgery helps us reach the ultimate goal for our patients - better vision free of complications with a more positive patient experience."

Cutting-edge Intraocular Lenses
Dr. Cibik and Dr. Nairn offer state-of-the-art, most recently FDA approved IOL's including the ReSTOR® Multifocal Toric IOL, ReSTOR® 2.5 IOL with ACTIVEFOCUSTM , Symfony ®IOL, and Symfony Toric® IOL. These lenses improve visual acuity at close, intermediate and far ranges, and therefore, help reduce the need to wear contact lenses or glasses after cataract surgery. Additionally, our surgeons have participated in various in FDA trials involving intraocular lens research and approval.

As an AIO patient, you can have confidence that your surgeons are using the most advanced technologies to help attain your vision goals.
