Philadelphia Cataract Surgeon – Dr. James S. Lewis
Serving Delaware Valley, Montgomery County, Warminster, Conshohocken, Phoenixville, Abington, Willow Grove, and surrounding areas.
James Lewis, MD has performed more than 70,000 successful cataract surgeries over the last 30 years. He was the first in the region to perform Dropless Cataract Surgery, the first to employ the Hydrus MicroStent, and the first to offer the Light Adjustable Lens, from RxSight (Aliso Viejo, CA), and the first to capture and utilize measured anterior and posterior corneal curvature in the calculation of intraocular lens power. Our surgical practice emphasizes premium cataract surgery including PanOptix™ and Vivity from Alcon (Fort Worth, TX) and the newly updated Light Adjustable Lens, MIGS (micro-invasive glaucoma surgery), refractive surgery (LASIK, PRK, Visian and Visian Toric ICL), and corneal surgery (DSEK, Cross Linking and Cross LinkingPlus). We emphasize individualized care, patient safety, professionalism, innovation, and advanced technology.
Our topography-guided excimer laser enhances surgical results, provides superior night driving vision, and improves contrast sensitivity. This technology regularizes the corneal geometry and can address conditions beyond the capabilities of traditional lasers.
Dr. Lewis provides all patients with an unedited video record of their surgical procedure.
RxSight has enhanced the safety and predictability of their Light Adjustable lens by adding a second layer of UV-protection to their groundbreaking intraocular implant. Patients achieve uncompromisingly clear vision and customize their visual results. ActivShield preserves the power and versatility of this technology.
Choose safer surgery, save $100 to $300 per eye, and reduce the hassle of multiple eye drops.
Intraocular antibiotics administered at the time of eye surgery reduces risk. We have employed this technique successfully on 15,000 cases since 2014 . By instilling antibiotics and steroids in the operating suite we reduce the need for postoperative drops saving patients hundreds dollars and hours of frustration, inconvenience, and aggravation. Dropless optimizes compliance in all patients and Less Drops keeps medication costs low.
Limit your glaucoma drops with Hydrus MicroStent.
Hydrus MicroStent has emerged as the best surgical option for patients with cataracts and mild to moderate glaucoma. Unlike alternative MIGS procedures, Hydrus has been shown to reduce the risk of aggressive glaucoma progression. Nearly 80% of patients using a single drop each night can stop their glaucoma medication. Our practice is the most experienced in Pennsylvania with Hydrus. We serve as a training site for other surgeons and clinical specialists...
