Cataract Surgery in Nashville
Dr. Terry Burkhalter, Nashville Eye Surgeon

Below are some of the eye specialty services offered by Dr. Burkhalter:


Dr. Burkhalter uses the very latest in cataract surgery techniques. This includes the no needle, no stitch procedures. There are no injections around the patient's eye. The incision into the eye is very small, only three millimeters. This means that, in most cases, no sutures are needed. Cataract surgery has changed a great deal in the last twenty years. It is now an outpatient eye procedure and has virtually no restrictions after surgery.

Bifocal Implants - Nashville

Dr. Burkhalter is a specialist in the treatment of cataracts, and particularly in the new bifocal implants. Surgery for these procedures is outpatient and generally lasts 25 minutes.

Cataract surgery is performed to remove a patient's cloudy lens; bifocal implantation is done to reduce or eliminate a person's dependence on glasses or contact lenses.
