Advanced Laser Technology
Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery:
The latest technology in cataract surgery involves the incorporation of the Femtosecond laser. This high precision laser is used to perform all the necessary incisions on the surface of the cornea, and to create a perfectly centered anterior opening on the cataract and pre-soften the cataract prior to being brought into the operating room. This procedure reduces the amount of time and ultrasound energy needed to remove the cataract in the operating room. Please discuss this option with your cataract surgeon as not every patient is an acceptable candidate for this exciting new procedure.
