A cataract is whenever the crystaline lens of the eye is not clear.  Cataracts can occur in infants and children rapidly leading to dense AMBLYOPIA; as a result surgeons from Alaska Children’s Eye address these urgently with examination, special eye measurement, microsurgery and rehabilitation with special contact lenses, spectacles, eye drops and patching.  Cataract is a common cause of adult blindness in America and in other remote parts of the world. Dr. Winkle is an expert at adult cataract surgery helping him hone his skill for pediatric cases and overseas missions.

What Our Patients Say

"Dr. Winkle and staff provide the most professional, friendly, and best customer service. Our 5 yr old daughter had strabismus surgery with Dr. Winkle 2 weeks ago, and I couldn’t be any more happier with the results and how quickly she’s recovered. Dr. Winkle and his team provided very detailed and important information during surgery, pre-op, and post-op. They take their time to explain and answer any questions one has. Their level of professionalism and care for our child was beyond anything. We are extremely grateful and thankful for what they did to better our little one’s vision."

"What a great place to bring children. First-class facility and great staff!"

"These guys are amazing with children! I would really recommend coming here if your kiddos are experiencing difficulties with their vision."
