San Antonio Eye Doctor gets 5 million+ YouTube Views on Cataract Surgery

J.T. Kavanagh MD-Ophthalmologist Cataract Surgeon

Dr. Kavanagh Eye SurgeryEye Associates of South Texas fellowship trained cataract expert, Dr. J.T. Kavanagh MD, has the most watched premium cataract surgery on YouTube with nearly 6 million active views of his premium intraocular (IOL) lens procedure. This surgery was performed right here in San Antonio, although it has been watched almost in every country in the world. There are many reasons this video is so popular, but we feel the most important is to show patients modern efficient and technically flawless cataract surgery by our board-certified ophthalmologist. In the surgery Dr. Kavanagh demonstrates the implantation of a Symfony IOL, this is the latest depth of focus IOL by Johnson and Johnson that allows the patient to get a continuous clarity of focus from distance to near without glasses.

During your cataract surgery, you have the choice of either a standard (usually covered by your medical insurance) or a premium lens to replace the cataractous lens that will be removed. The main benefit of the premium IOL is that they can make you less reliant on glasses for distance and/or near vision.

Cataract surgery can be done completely manually as shown in the video or it can also be complemented by the use of a Femtosecond Laser. At Eye Associates of South Texas, we also offer LASER CATARACT surgery to correct astigmatism if present, with computer-guided laser arcuate incisions at the time of your cataract surgery. This translates to better vision without glasses most of the time!Eye Associates of South Texas Laser Surgery

The surgery is captured in High Definition this allows you to see in nearly the same detail as Dr. Kavanagh did during the surgery. If you watch the video below you will see that it took only around 5-minutes. That’s a 5-minute surgery to get patients with cataracts to see better than they have in years. Dr. Kavanagh (Eye Associates of South Texas) has offices in San Antonio (Medical Center and North Central), Seguin, New Braunfels, La Vernia, Hondo, Castroville, Luling, Lockhart, Gonzales and covers all surrounding areas.

If you feel your vision is compromised with driving, reading, seeing the crawl on TV, or glare at night then call us for a consultation (830-379-3937) as these are symptoms of a cataract.

If you have glaucoma and cataracts you may be a candidate for MIGS (Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery) at the time of your cataract surgery that may allow better control of your glaucoma with fewer or no medications required. The Eye Doctors of Eye Associates of South Texas are experts in MIGS surgery and will explain your medical and surgical options to you at the time of cataract consultation.
