Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery

Modern state-of-the-art cataract surgery can be performed with lasers which are more precise and consistent than the human hand can ever be for several of the delicate steps of cataract surgery. “Lasers” are simply a special type of light that can be focused to apply energy in a very precise & consistent manner. The use of lasers in cataract surgery has made modern cataract surgery safer & more effective than ever.

In addition to their accuracy & consistency, laser-assisted cataract surgery results in less inflammation & swelling, faster recovery times, better positioning of your new lens implant, and allows for the precise treatment of astigmatism. Combined with modern lens implants, laser-assisted cataract surgery makes cataract surgery safer and results in better vision for patients than ever before.

State-of-the-art Lens Implants

In addition to removing your cataracts, modern cataract surgery allows us to correct your vision during your procedure. This provides patients with the freedom to live their lives without needing glasses or contact lenses for some, or all, of their activities after surgery.

A “cataract” is when the natural lens inside your eye becomes cloudy. In cataract surgery, this cloudy lens is removed, and a clear implant is put in its place. Modern lens implants can be customized to the shape of your eye & your lifestyle. These lens implants can fix near-sightedness, far-sightedness, and astigmatism.

Prior to your procedure, we’ll take a series of measurements & discuss selecting the best lens implants to suit your lifestyle — whether that means computer work, golfing, tennis, driving… or all of the above. Our expertise is customizing your vision to your lifestyle & vision goals, and helping you achieve freedom from glasses & contact lenses after your cataract surgery.

What Steps Are Involved With Laser Cataract Surgery?

There are 3 major steps to advanced laser cataract surgery.

A Corneal Incision is Made.

The first step in the process is to make an incision in the cornea, as this incision is what allows us to gain access to the interior of the eye.

An Anterior Capsulotomy is Done.

Once the incision is made, we must remove the clear capsule that surrounds the eye’s natural lens. By removing this capsule through an anterior capsulotomy, we gain direct access to the cataract.

The Cataract is Fragmented & Removed.

Now the laser is used to soften the cataract up, breaking it down into small, soft pieces. We then replace the natural lens with an intraocular lens implant.

It can take as little as 20-minutes to complete the surgery.
