Recognize the Signs & Symptoms of Cataracts

Cataracts typically develop slowly and painlessly over time – in fact in the early stages, symptoms may be so mild that you may not even realize that your vision is changing. However, as the cataract becomes more dense, you will eventually experience one or more of the following symptoms:

Experience You Can Trust

If you are experiencing changes in your vision, there’s no reason to worry, and no reason to wait. Eye Center of Hawaii is home to the top 1% of surgeons in the U.S. and thanks to experienced surgeons, Drs. Bennett and Safi, and new advancements in cataract surgery, regaining your vision has become easier and safer than ever.

Most Insurance & Medicare is Accepted

Traditional cataract surgery with a standard lens is usually covered by Medicare and insurance when it's medically necessary (co-insurance & deductibles may apply). Many patients are excited that they now have more options than ever before to enjoy freedom from glasses and contacts with Laser Cataract Surgery and Multifocal Lifestyle Lenses. While insurance typically does not cover these options, over time the cost of this advanced technology may prove to be the most affordable choice when comparing the cost of buying glasses or contacts for the rest of your life.

If left untreated, cataracts will eventually begin to interfere with normal, everyday activities. The time to have cataract surgery is when your quality of life has been impacted by poor vision. With today’s safer, more precise technology, there’s never been a better time to have cataract surgery.

Don’t wait. See Better Now!

Bennett Eye Institute has been transformed into Eye Center of Hawai’i.

In 1998, Dr. Michael Bennett laid the foundation for our journey, leading us to become the largest retinal practice in Hawai’i and one of the nation’s leaders in research. However, as the landscape evolved, we recognized the need to differentiate ourselves, leading to our transition to Bennett Eye Institute. Now, as Eye Center of Hawai’i, we come full circle, reflecting our dedication to delivering exceptional care with expanded services.
