At Providence Eye & Laser Specialists, our cataract surgeon Dr. Trey Nunnery will give you honest recommendations as he assesses your unique vision needs, examines your eyes, and evaluates the extensive data gathered by our multiple testing devices. Dr. Nunnery is a compassionate, expert surgeon who, after a thorough evaluation, can determine if and when cataract surgery is appropriate. He will also discuss the options for replacing your cloudy lens with an Intraocular Lens (IOL). These lenses, which will replace your cloudy lens, can restore your clear vision and even correct your near vision!
We take pride in our thorough and sincere educational process all our patients go through. Simply put: we know many important factors come into play when deciding on cataract surgery. We are here to guide you through the process, every step of the way.
If you think you might have cataracts or have been told by your eye care provider that you have the onset of cataracts, an evaluation by our surgeon, Dr. Nunnery, is the best step to understand your options. Your time with Dr. Nunnery will be spent educating you and answering all of your questions.
Cataract surgery performed by our surgeon, Dr. Nunnery, is conducted at The Surgery Center at Edgewater just 20 minutes from our South Charlotte office.
