Medical Management Services Group, L.L.C., managers of the patient information web site for cataracts, cataract surgery and lens implants http://www.aboutcataractsurgery announced today that Fall River Cataract Surgeons Robert Kelly, M.D. and Gregory Hofeldt, M.D. of Center for Sight have become members of it's network of cataract surgeons offering access to the useful patient friendly web information resource. "The many advances in the management of cataracts and the technology of cataract surgery and lens implants means eye care patients have a lot to learn in order to be informed vision correction consumers", stated Robert Kelly, M.D.
http://www.aboutcataractsurgery.com is structured to provide eye care consumers with useful and reliable information about how cataracts affect vision, symptoms of cataracts, cataracts and astigmatism, near vision & presbyopia, the cataract surgery procedure, recovery from cataract surgery and complications of cataract surgery. In addition the site contains detailed information regarding the different types of lens implants that can be used to correct vision after cataract surgery such as aspheric lens implants, astigmatism correcting toric lens implants and near vision correcting presbyopic lens implants.
"We are committed to helping patients learn as much as possible about cataract and cataract surgery so that they understand the available options. This education helps us to help the patient make the best decisions regarding their cataract surgery and care. A well informed patient makes a helpful partner for the cataract surgeon", said Dr. Hofeldt.
Drs. Kelly and Hofeldt of Center for Sight in Fall River Massachusetts provide patients modern cataract surgery procedures that require only a tiny incision that is performed with "eye drop" anesthesia rather than needles so that patients have a quick recovery and are back to most normal activities within a couple of days. In addition, they offer a number of types of advanced technology lens implants including those that can correct astigmatism as part of cataract surgery as well as lens implants that help patients minimize or eliminate their need for reading glasses or bifocals after cataract surgery.
"We elected to become supporters and users of http://www.aboutcataractsurgery.com because this site is able to provide eye care consumers with unbiased information about cataracts, cataract surgery, cataract surgeons and lens implants since it does not accept funding, support or advertising from pharmaceutical, medical device, laser or lens implant companies", said Dr. Hofeldt.
