    He was professional, confident and my cataract surgery results were good.

    He was recommended by my husband's Dr. for cataract surgery. Dr. Younger's calm, friendly and very knowledgeable persona makes one feel comfortable and sure of any advise he gives after testing. Surgery was performed on both eyes with excellent results. His staff is friendly & knowledgeable about Medicare and other insurance plans. I was so impressed with his service and that of his staff that I too came in for an eye exam and chose their frames over a less expensive solution.

    Dr Younger is incredible. In Palm Springs I thought I had good drs. 3 years ago I stopped driving, no one knew what was wrong! I came to Dr Younger, he explained exactly what was wrong, what type of cataracts I had & how he would fix it! He took care of me pre-op thru post-op, both eyes done & I feel like I've experienced a miracle. Everyone including Courtney and Heather, are great as well. The level of kindness, compassion, experience & competence is remarkable. I highly recommend Dr Younger!

    Dr. Younger says...

    Dr. Younger performs nearly all cataract surgery with the Catalys Laser as he believes this technology has taken the surgery to a new level of precision. Just as you have options when it comes to choosing the lens implant that you receive during cataract surgery, you also have the option of choosing the technology that is used to perform the procedure. That means you have the choice between surgery performed manually, or with the assistance of laser technology.

    Either type of procedure can be effective when performed by a skilled surgeon, but laser-assisted cataract surgery procedures are generally more predictable and precise. Laser-assisted cataract surgery technology can automate certain steps during the procedure with laser precision, and correct astigmatism.

    Dr. Younger says...

    Refractive Cataract Surgery

    A cataract is caused by the clouding of the lens in the eye. As the cataracts progress, eyeglasses prescriptions change frequently and, daily visual function becomes impaired. Cataract surgery involves the removal of the cloudy lens and the implantation of an artificial lens. Since a laser created, self-sealing small incision is used, it does not require suture closure, thus the term "no stitch cataract surgery." The entire process is completed in less than ½ hour and is performed under local anesthesia. Dr. Younger is board-certified and fellowship-trained and is specifically skilled in removing cataracts, and is also experienced in the recognition and treatment of complications of cataract surgery.
