Snead Eye Group (Cape Coral) Offers Patients Cutting Edge Cataract Removal with Faster Recovery

Southwest Florida ophthalmologist Snead Eye Group is offering patients high-quality eye cataract removal procedures with comfortable post-op recovery.

Snead Eye Group is one of the only eye surgery centers in Southwest Florida to offer LenSx® Femtosecond Cataract Laser Surgery, a procedure that eliminates some of the complications following cataract removal. The result, for Snead Eye Group patients, is a much more comfortable recovery period with the ability to return to their regular schedules within a day or two.

Founder of Snead Eye Group, Dr. John W. Snead MD, MBA, FACS, talks about the benefits offered by its chosen cataract removal procedure by saying, “The revolutionary LenSx® Femtosecond is the first FDA-cleared custom cataract laser that allows us to create incisions that are more accurate and precise. This means we can help you avoid many of the uncertainties that can cause side effects after eye cataract removal. Cataract surgery is already one of the most common and well-established ophthalmology procedures, with a success rate of over 98% according to the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery. With the LenSx® Femtosecond, we are narrowing this gap even further.”

Snead Eye Group’s cataract removal procedure lasts 15 minutes but patients will be required to stay in the observation area for up to an hour after the operation. As their eyes may be sensitive to bright lights and glare and they might also feel groggy, it is recommended to have someone accompany the patient to drive them home after the surgery. Most surgery patients report improved eyesight almost immediately after the procedure with many patients experiencing better vision than before they even developed cataracts.

Snead Eye Group only uses a topical anesthetic and self-healing incision for the cataract procedure, enabling quicker recovery. Cataracts do not grow back after the surgery but some patients might experience the clouding of thin tissue around the intraocular lens (IOL). In most cases, the clouded capsule can be opened up and clear vision can be restored with an additional procedure.

Following the surgery with the Florida eye clinic’s state-of-the-art equipment, patients can choose from several lenses. The doctors at Snead Eye Group offer patients personalized advice to help them pick between Multifocal lenses, Vivity lenses, and Toric lenses. The clinic also offers patients AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL Lenses, the first and only multifocal IOL of its kind in the United States which offers better near (reading) vision and intermediate (computer work) vision compared to a mono-focal lens.

The Southwest Florida eye clinic’s patients have shared their many success stories on its Google Business Profile. In a review on its Naples clinic page, where it has an impressive overall rating of 4.7 out of 5.0 from nearly 60 reviews, one patient writes, “My cataract surgery at Snead Eye Group was a dream come true! The dedicated staff made me feel like I was in the best of hands, and Dr. Brad’s expertise ensured a flawless procedure. If you’re looking for top-notch eye care services, definitely go here!”

In another 5-star review, on the Google Business Profile for Snead Eye Group in Cape Coral, one patient writes, “I went to my first appointment yesterday feeling scared as my vision is progressively getting worse. The eye doctor carefully listened to me explain my vision history starting with my first eye surgery at the age of two. Within an hour and several tests later, she set me up an appointment with their eye surgeon. She reassured me that their group will fix my eyes so I can see without buying yet another $1000 pair of glasses that won’t fix my problem. I left feeling no fear for the first time in years. If you are experiencing eye concerns, go to Snead. They are second to none.”
