Cataract surgery is a procedure that removes the cloudy natural lens and replaces it with an artificial intraocular lens.
Femtosecond Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery (LenSx)
Femtosecond assisted and computer-guided laser offer a higher level of precision for cataract surgery. Scanning technology is used to carefully map and measure the eye. These images are used to plan and perform customized laser-assisted surgery to specifications generally not attainable with traditional surgery. The laser makes micro-incisions to access the cataract and correct astigmatism. The laser also breaks up the cataract and creates a circular opening in the lens capsule, for precise placement of the new intraocular lens.
Presbyopia/multifocal lens implantation
Advanced technology allows the implantation of premium intraocular lenses that address the issues of presbyopia and astigmatism and may eliminate the need for glasses.
