A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. As we age, the lens progressively becomes dysfunctional resulting in loss of near vision (presbyopia) that requires the use of reading glasses or bifocals.

Premium IOL

Advancements in technology have produced multifocal IOLs that allow patients to see clearly at all distances — near, far and many distances in between.


Until recently, if you were one of the millions of people with a refractive error, eyeglasses and contact lenses were the only options for correcting vision.

What Our Patients Say

My husband has been a patient here since 2000. He was criticality injured in an industrial accident and as a result, one of his losses was his right eye. Dr. Beeson and Dr. Hartel were key in his recovery. We’ve had the pleasure of being follow-up patients for the last 16 plus years. They are life savers.
