As of September 2013, Dr. Miller has performed over 1,500 cataract surgeries using ReStor and Toric lens implants. He has performed over 20,000 cataract surgeries during his career.
Dr. Miller was the first ophthalmologist in Rockford to perform Cataract surgery using Alcon’s ReStor multifocal lens implant. The lens implant is designed to restore the patients’ near, far and in between vision without the need for glasses. With standard lens implants most patients require glasses for sharp near, mid-range and distance vision.
“With the latest technological advances there are implants that can reduce or eliminate your need for glasses after cataract surgery. I think this is the greatest advance in ophthalmology in the last 30 years! It is likely that in 20-30 years most people may not even need glasses. They would have multifocal lens implants to correct their vision for life and never worry about getting cataracts! Now is an exciting time to be a cataract surgeon.” – Richard A. Miller M.D.
To celebrate this milestone, Miller Eye Center has been gathering current and past ReStor and Toric patients for photos and testimonials telling their stories of how these lenses have changed their lives. The photo / testimonials will be displayed in our clinic for all to see.
