Combination Cataract Surgery
As one of the pioneers of Custom Cataract surgery, Dr. Gulani has displayed these skills over time not only of performing Cataract surgery by itself but also combining it with other vision corrective surgery to take patients with extreme vision errors or complex situations to 20/20 vision. Approaching the eye as a camera Dr. Gulani decides how many optical elements (cornea, lens) are impacting that patient’s vision and can uniquely correct each of them singly or in combination, simultaneously or staged over time. This is a tremendous advantage for patients that are with surgeons that are limited by their abilities – only Lasik, only cataract, or only cornea surgery therefore “fitting the patient to their surgery.”’ Dr. Gulani with his vast range of surgeries and technologies can custom design to uniquely “fit the surgery to the patient.”
Over three decades, as a Master surgeon, Dr. Gulani has developed a systematic approach with unlimited technology and techniques; his proprietary KLEAR™ system (Kerato-Lenticulo-Extended Armamentarium-Refractive) includes all forms of surgeries including Corneal (Kerato), Lens Implants/Cataract/ICL (Lenticulo), and Lasik/PRK/LenZoPlastique/Intacs/CXL (Refractive). This KLEAR™ system of his guided by his proprietary GPS™ (Gulani Planning System) protocols have successfully addressed not only first time candidates but also those with complex and Botched surgeries in many cases to 20/20 vision outcomes.
Following a detailed personal consultation with the patient along with advanced diagnostic testing he then classifies the exact “GPSTM” for combination cataract surgery:
- Lens-Cornea: with Lasik, INTACS, DSAEK, Pterygium, Pinguecula, IRI
- Lens-Lens: with piggy-back lenses, capsular reinforcement, primary posterior capsulorhexis
- Lens-Iris: with pupilloplasty, iridectomy
Armed with this detailed knowledge Dr. Gulani then determines to address as many of these as he humanly can. Unleashing a uniquely designed surgical plan with cutting-edge technology and technique application Dr. Gulani has brought thousands of patients from all over the world to their best vision potential.
