If you’ve got cataracts and your loss of vision is impacting your life, it might be time to seek an eye doctor. Cataracts are a common side-effect of ageing, but that doesn’t mean you should just put up with it—a good eye doctor can completely restore your sight. In fact, cataracts affect millions of people across the world every year, and the treatment—replacement of your cloudy lens with an intraocular lens (IOL)—is the single most commonly performed surgical eye procedure in the world.

Surgery can be an intimidating prospect for anyone, but can especially be a concern for the elderly, as theirs is the typical demographic dealing with cataracts. If you’re looking into getting your cataracts taken care of but have some concerns, read on to find out what you should look for in an eye doctor in order to feel confident about the procedure. 


The technology used in surgical eye procedures has developed a lot over the past few decades. When it comes to finding an ophthalmologist in Auckland to help with your cataracts, finding one that utilises the best technology available goes a long way toward your peace of mind. 

Here at Re:Vision Sight Correction Centre, we’re proud to be trained and qualified with the newest tools available to eye surgeons in New Zealand. If you’re looking for a practice that can promise accuracy and reliability, Re:Vision is the practice for you.


Another important thing to consider when comparing eye doctors is experience. All surgical eye procedures require care and precision, so you want a practitioner who’s had an ample amount of training and experience in the field.

Our doctors here at Re:Vision have strong track records, so you know that you’re in good hands. Dr Mo Ziaei, for example, has over 10 years’ experience, trained in the UK, and has completed over 2,000 cataract surgeries. The founder of Re:Vision, Dr Trevor Gray, has earned a reputation over his long-running career as the busiest cataract surgeon in Auckland, and has over 40,000 successful vision correction procedures under his belt—over 22,000 of these are cataract treatments.

Personality and Care

An often-overlooked element of surgery is the care provided to you. This includes bedside manner as well as care you receive before and after the operation. 

It’s important that your doctor cares about you and makes you feel comfortable. Here at Re:Vision, we understand how important it is to be compassionate. After all, we treat so many cataract patients that surgery is basically routine for us! But that doesn’t mean it’s routine for you, and that’s what matters—you can trust that we won’t treat you like a number. 

Our before-and-after care services are unmatched, as we prioritise your comfort and safety from the moment you walk through our doors. Rest assured our staff prioritise communication and professionalism from initial consultation to after-treatment care for an easy, relaxing experience.


Finally, a sure-fire way to know whether or not you’re making a good call is to rely on the feedback of others. Take a moment to check out reviews for cataract surgery. This way, you can get an idea of what other patients think about the experience.
