Laser Cataract Surgery
Laser Cataract Surgery is one of the most common and safest procedures performed today. Both the technology and methodology continue to improve with each new advancement. However, as eye technology, techniques, and practices advance, it can be hard to know the difference between the different types of cataract surgery available to patients today.
Laser cataract surgery is a procedure that’s carried out to remove a diseased lens and replace it with an artificial one. The laser replaces the traditional hand-held blade to optimize all incisions for enhanced, reproducible surgical performance. This breakthrough technology provides the surgeon with real-time three-dimensional visualization for true customization of your lens replacement procedure. The procedure involves making a small incision in the cornea of the eye, breaking down the existing lens with ultrasound, and suctioning it out. The new lens is called an Intraocular Lens, or IOL.The IOL is inserted and the incision is closed using an advanced, self-healing liquid.
