Benefits of LenSx® Laser Cataract Surgery
LenSx® Laser Cataract Surgery involves the use of guided laser energy to perform many aspects of the procedure. Some of the benefits include:
- Precision – allows our eye surgeons to remove cataracts with greater precision and accuracy
- Customization – the laser is meticulously guided according to the unique anatomy of your eye
- Elimination of Scalpels – the laser can perform the incisions required without using diamond micro scalpels
- Astigmatism Correction – the laser is known for its remarkable control of astigmatism and overall vision outcomes after cataract surgery
- Reduction of Energy – the laser can help soften and prepare the cataract for removal, further protecting the delicate internal eye structures
During the cataract removal procedure, the eye’s natural lens must be removed and then replaced with a lens implant (also referred to as an intraocular lens, or IOL). Our doctors have extensive experience with specialized lens implants, and offer a range of options to restore your vision after cataract surgery.
