At Columbus Ophthalmology Associates, we are proud to be on the cutting edge of innovation. Companies trust us as some of the first physicians to approach with new procedures that are changing patients’ lives.I was recently one of the first surgeons in the state of Ohio to use the Callisto microscope to precisely place a Trulign accommodating lens implant. This lens allows patients to focus on objects both near and far without the need for glasses. The Trulign implant is a Crystalens platform with additional correction for astigmatism and is the only lens of its kind.

Before I performed this innovative cataract procedure on him, my patient Kevin had 20/70 vision from cataracts. To put that in perspective, you need better than 20/50 vision to pass a driver’s license vision test. The day after the cataract surgery, Kevin had 20/20 vision for distance and could still read small print, all without glasses. It has been a life changing operation for Kevin.

The physicians at Columbus Ophthalmology Associates are happy to remain leaders in our field and be the surgeons both companies and patients turn to for cutting edge technology.
