What Are Cataracts?
If You Have Cataracts, You Are Not Alone
Candidates for Cataract Treatment
Impact on Quality of Life
Since cataract development can be slow, Dr. Minkovitz may recommend non-surgical options such as wearing stronger sunglasses to reduce light sensitivity and glare before moving on to cataract surgery. If cataracts interfere with your ability to drive, read, distinguish between colors, or complete daily tasks, then you may be a good candidate for the procedure.
Certain medical conditions like diabetes can lead to complications during the procedure and affect your ability to heal. We can work alongside your primary care physician to minimize your risk. Controlling your blood sugar in this case, for example, can improve your overall health. We will work with you to find a solution.

Why Choose Us For Your Eye Care Needs in Wilmington, DE
Leaders in the Field
Laser cataract surgery with the LenSx® laser was FDA approved in 2011 and allows more precise blade-free incisions and more accurate and reproducible removal of cataract lens material. Dr. Minkovitz and his partners at the Center for Advanced Surgical Arts were the first to bring this technology to Delaware (one of the first 75 units installed nationwide).
Our team consists of several esteemed doctors like Dr. Minkovitz who specialize in diagnosing and treating different eye conditions to provide a full range of services.
A Range of Premium IOLs
Monofocal artificial lenses, or intraocular lenses (IOLs), provide clear vision at a single distance. Premium lenses, on the other hand, can overcome visual impairments such as astigmatism and allow you to see clearly close-up, at intermediate distances, and far away–without glasses or contacts.
An Award-Winning Team
All of our doctors have been voted one of the Top Doctors in Delaware over the past 20 years in Delaware Today Magazine.

Insurance Coverage & Financing Options
Medicare and other types of insurance usually cover at least part of the cost of cataract surgery and monofocal IOLs. Premium lenses, however, will incur out-of-pocket costs.
Our practice offers flexible monthly payment plans through CareCredit®, a company dedicated to financing healthcare expenses. Contact our offices in Wilmington, Newark, or Dover, DE, to learn more about your financing options for cataract surgery.
