Cataract surgery is now available at Macon Community Hospital!
Nashville’s top cataract surgeon, Dr. Stewart Shofner, is now performing cataract surgeries every 3rd Tuesday at Macon Community Hospital.
Dr. Shofner specializes in cataract vision correction surgery, has performed over 20,000 ocular procedures, and is recognized as one of the outstanding Board Certified Ophthalmologist and Cataract Eye Surgeons in the United States!
A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. It can be compared to a window that is frosted or has yellowed. Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in the world, and the longer they are left untreated, the more difficult it can be to successfully remove the cataract and restore normal vision.
If you have noticed changes in your vision such as blurriness, glare or light sensitivity, fading or yellowing of colors, needing a brighter light to read, or poor night vision, we encourage you to talk with your local optometrist about scheduling an appointment with Dr. Shofner for further evaluation.
