Maintaining the health and safety of our patients, employees, and community is our top priority.  


To ensure social distancing to the best of our ability, we must limit the number of people in the office. We are asking patients to bring only one family member/friend with them during their visit. They must remain with you through out your exam. At this time we are not allowing visitors to wait in the reception area.

Patients must meet the following criteria:

  • Follow social distancing policies.
  • Have had no symptoms or exposure in the last 14 days.
  • Temperature of less than 100.0F.

 Mask Policy:

  • Patients and approved visitors must wear a mask. Masks are still required in all healthcare facilities.
  • Masks must fully cover the nose and mouth.

Cataract Surgery Provided by Our Dayton Ophthalmologists

Cataracts occur when a clouding on the lens of your eye obstructs your vision. You may notice that your vision looks hazy, almost like you're looking through a fogged-up window. Eventually, as cataracts worsen, your vision deteriorates. Seeing at night may become difficult. Patients often experience seeing halos around lights, among other issues. As it becomes more severe, contact surgery is the only solution. Fortunately, at Kunesh Eye Center, Inc. in Dayton, OH, our doctor can determine when this procedure is right for you. 

Eye Surgery

When Is Surgery the Solution 

While prescription eyewear is enough to combat cataracts in their early stages, cataracts surgery is your only option once cataracts affect your quality of life and corrective eyewear is no longer adequately correcting the problem. Typically, we use surgery as a last resort. We encourage it once cataracts are interfering with your ability to read or drive.

What Happens During Surgery

For this type of eye surgery, our eye surgeons will remove the damaged or clouded lens and replace it with an artificial one. At the start of the surgery, our practitioners will give you a local anesthetic to numb the area. Next, our surgeons make an incision in the cornea of the eye. Our ophthalmologists then use a device to gently break up the natural lens of your eye. Once in fragments, our surgeons will use a device to suction the lens from your eye. 

Finally, our doctors will situate the intraocular lens in the same position as your original one. Stitches aren't necessary for this procedure. The eye will heal on its own.

Once complete, you may return home. You'll need to have someone drive you home after your procedure. If you have a cataract in the other eye, our doctors will schedule a future surgery to treat that one. This ensures you can still see from your other eye as the other one heals. 

Recovery

You'll need to wear an eye shield on that eye as you recover. This prevents bacteria and dirt from entering and causing an infection or irritation. When you remove your shield, you may notice that your vision will appear blurry, distorted, or cloudy. This is normal and will improve as you recover. The shield also relieves you from this unpleasantness. 

You could experience bruising around your eye or bloodshot eyes. Both will subside gradually.  Cataracts surgery can help you be able to read and drive again confidently. The procedure is relatively straightforward and is safe for most people.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • Highly recommend this practice! I was in town visiting family and had an issue with my eye that worried me and needed to be checked.but couldn’t get in with another physician until later, and their reviews weren’t as high. I phoned Kunesh and was greeted by Julie, super pleasant on the phone and when I described my issue, she was very prompt in getting me an appointment.

  • If and when you have a retina tear, this is the place to go. I was seen on a Saturday and was the only patient. If you live long enough and are near sighted and see Northern lights inside call. You will be seen. Normally this is not a problem, but only an ophthalmologist can tell. To avoid the long wait take the earliest appointment offered. If not, it is definitely worth the wait. The optometrist is great, too, but must be requested. Their attention to detail is amazing! You will have drops, s
