Many people develop vision problems, such as cataracts, as they age. Fortunately, a well-trained and experienced eye specialist can guarantee that the natural aging process does not impede your ability to enjoy everything there is to see in the world.
If you have begun developing cataracts, then you most likely know how difficult seeing can be. Night vision is often impacted, causing nighttime driving to be a challenge. You may also develop sensitivity to light or have trouble seeing objects clearly. Fortunately, cataract surgery is a safe and effective way to restore clear vision. At Eye Care Specialists, we understand the important role technology plays in helping you achieve the best possible results during your cataract surgery. That’s why we use the LenSx® femtosecond laser with our cataract surgery patients. This revolutionary technology is the first computer-controlled laser cataract surgery approved by the FDA.
We realize that some of this information may be a bit complicated, and we are happy to explain it to you in greater detail. Please call 1-877-489-7405 today to schedule a cataract surgery consultation at our Northeastern Pennsylvania ophthalmology office.
Benefits of the LenSx® Femtosecond Laser?
Your eyes are truly unique. While all eyes may share some of the same structural properties, no two sets of eyes are exactly alike. They all have slight differences in size, depth, and curvature. As a result, it is crucial for your eyes to be carefully measured and mapped prior to cataract surgery to ensure the best possible results. The LenSx laser uses state-of-the-art optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology to create extremely precise, high-resolution, 3D images of your eyes. These measurements and images are used to plan and perform your cataract surgery, creating a truly customized procedure not previously attainable with traditional cataract surgery technology.
The LenSx laser improves the precision of your cataract surgery results by utilizing the following capabilities:
Real-time video imaging that provides a high-resolution, 3D image of your eye during the planning phase of your procedure
Image-guided surgical planning software that enables our cataract surgeons to program the size, shape, and location of the incision with greater accuracy
Touch screen graphic user interface that enables every step of your cataract surgery to be planned, customized, and executed with ease and precision
The LenSx laser automates some of the most challenging steps of the cataract surgery procedure. Controlled pulses of laser energy are used to create incisions and break apart the cataracts in your eye’s lens. Previously, all incisions were made by hand using a blade. The use of a laser for these steps has increased the accuracy which can be achieved, delivering exceptional results for patients.
