Dr. Randal Pham, founder of Aesthetic & Refractive Surgery Medical Center, is the first surgeon in Northern California to implant the ReSTOR intraocular lens, allowing patients to see distance and near without glasses. Dr. Pham recently achieved a new milestone; he established Advanced Surgery Medical Center, the first training center for laser cataract refractive surgery in the Western United States utilizing the OpiMedica Catalys Precision Laser System.Dr. Pham performs state-of-the-art laser cataract surgery with premium IOLs. He uses an advanced laser to make a tiny incision in the eye and directs the laser beam at the cataract-diseased lens. The laser energy gently breaks the lens into small pieces, and they are extracted from the eye. Then, Dr. Pham places a folded-up IOL through the same incision. He carefully positions it and unfolds it over the eye. The specific type of IOL used will depend on the patient’s unique vision needs.
