Advanced cataract surgery allows your surgeon to tailor your procedure with the goal of reducing your need for glasses or contact lenses. During your procedure, your surgeon will use the most advanced technology available, including intraocular lenses and a cataract laser with advanced imaging, to ensure that your vision is optimized after surgery.
Your surgeon offers the use of a cataract laser as part of your advanced cataract procedure because it is the most advanced technology available today.
What does the laser provide?
Safety: The laser’s imaging provides your surgeon with a 3-D model of your eye, allowing for more accurate information and treatment choices during your cataract removal procedure. Precision: The laser’s advanced technology offers the most precise and accurate treatment available.
Results: The laser system allows your surgeon to precisely place the laser to effectively soften your cataract for removal and ensures the appropriate condition for the best lens placement, which helps restore your vision.
The laser system uses a proprietary imaging system that scans and takes precise measurements of your eye, which provides your surgeon with a 3-D model of your eye’s anatomy. The proprietary imaging system’s measurements are then used to calculate a customized treatment plan just for you.
The laser is then used to soften the cataract so it can be easily removed and to ensure the appropriate condition for the most accurate placement of your new intraocular lens. The laser is designed with comfort in mind, so you can relax knowing you have the latest technology available to treat one of your most valuable senses – your sight.
