Dr. Raviv’s view of an all star expert panel on Astigmatism management during catarct surgery

If you’ve already had LASIK, then you know what visual freedom from glasses and contacts feels like.  Now you’ve been told you have a cataract, and your vision has faded.  In the past, your LASIK would have limited your intraocular lens (IOL) options.  Dr. Raviv has implanted the latest generation IOLs in post LASIK patients. In many cases, enhancing their vision even beyond what they had achieved with their LASIK.   Here the Symfony IOL is shown in a post LASIK eye. The patient now enjoys glasses free vision for distance and near.

Here is a recent industry journal article describing Dr. Raviv’s approach to cataract surgery after LASIK.
