The change has been fantastic and I now see 20/20!
I wore tri-focal glasses for 52 years. Now, thanks to having had cataract surgery and choosing Clear Upgrade, I no longer depend upon glasses for good vision! Dr. Filutowski has restored my youth! The change has been fantastic and I now see 20/20! My wife also chose Clear Upgrade and with her cataract surgery, neither of us look for our glasses when we want to go out for a nice ride. Thumbs up to Dr. Filutowski and to Clear Upgrade for allowing my wife and I to enjoy life with great vision!
I no longer needed glasses of any kind.
At the age of 85, my fondest pastimes are deep-sea fishing, swimming, crossword puzzles, and riding my motorbike. About six months ago because of cataracts and general loss of sight it looked like I would have to give up crossword puzzles and driving any form of a motor vehicle. After much research, I chose Filutowski Institute. The procedure was far more simple and comfortable than I had imagined. I no longer needed glasses of any kind. My sight is now 20/20 and my driver’s license has been renewed for another 7 years! Thank you Dr. Filutowski for letting me enjoy seeing God’s beautiful world and letting me drive my motor vehicles.
I felt special, and the gals in their surgery center treated me as if I was the only patient.
The staff of the Filutowski Cataract & LASIK Institute is exceptionally friendly, each and every one. I chose Clear Upgrade and the new laser technology sounded wonderful. On the day of my cataract surgery, I hardly felt anything, and only one time did I feel a little pressure on my eye when Dr. Filutowski was using the laser. I did not take any sedative before the procedure and went through it comfortably. I was a little cold and wrapped up in a nice warm blanket. I felt special, and the gals in their surgery center treated me as if I was the only patient.

The lens implant is intended to be permanent and does not need to be replaced under normal circumstances. Although this would be unlikely, the lens implant can be replaced with a different one if needed.
No, once a cataract has been removed it cannot return. However, with time, patients may complain that their vision has once again become cloudy. This fairly common condition is known as posterior capsular opacity or “PCO”. If the PCO becomes bothersome, the surgeon can clear it away with a simple laser procedure performed in the office.
