    Mats Rehnberg M.D., Ophthalmologist Mats Rehnberg
    M.D., Ophthalmologist

    Mats Rehnberg has been fascinated by the eye since his teenage years, as a point of aesthetic focus and as an anatomic physiological construction. This fascination remains without diminishing after many years as an eye surgeon. Developments within cataract surgery have been enormous, and we can now use very small incisions and small, flexible lenses that are highly advanced. Laser technology has revolutionized treatment for younger patients, giving the possibility of forming the corneal optics and removing the need to wear spectacles. Those over 50 or 60 years of age may not need to use reading glasses, an opportunity that is raised by the insertion of multifocal lenses. Mats has undergone the latter treatment himself, and enjoys the day-to-day freedom of not needing spectacles, just as in his youth.
