LenSx® Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery
During traditional (non-laser) cataract surgery the surgeon makes incisions and removes the old lens using surgical instruments and a diamond blade. During laser cataract surgery with the LenSx® laser, these incisions, and many other critical steps of the cataract procedure, are now done with a laser. This technology now allows surgeons to plan and perform cataract surgeries with laser precision.
The LenSx® laser also features real-time diagnostic tools for an accurate visual of what’s going on inside the eye during the procedure, making the procedure more customizable than ever before. When used in conjunction with one of our premium intraocular lenses (IOL), the LenSx® laser offers patients even more predictable results, potentially leading to freedom from glasses after cataract surgery.
At your cataract consultation at Premier Vision Consultants, you will be educated on the traditional blade-based approach, as well as the LenSx® laser-assisted approach to cataract surgery. This will help you make the best decision for your lifestyle, and goals after cataract surgery.
