PREMIUM LASER CATARACT SURGERY
SOON A REALITY IN LOS ANGELES
Los Angeles based Advanced Vision Care to Be One of Only Fifteen Locations in the US to Offer the Breakthrough Technology
(September 16, 2011) – Los Angeles, CA - Effective Sept 27, 2011 Advanced Vision Care Surgeons will offer a revolutionary new form of Premium Cataract Surgery. Employing the LenSx Femtosecond laser for added precision in key parts of the cataract surgical procedure, the surgeons (Samuel Masket, M.D. and Nicole Fram, M.D.) anticipate the safest and most reliable outcomes for cataract surgery patients. Although present levels of surgery are a virtual miracle of modern medicine, the new premium laser assisted method promises even greater accuracy.
Dr. Masket was the first surgeon to adapt the femtosecond laser technology for the purpose of cataract surgery in experimental work as early as 2004. He and Dr. Fram published this work in the Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery in 2010. Now, use of this laser for patients has become a reality. Specialty Surgery Center in Beverly Hills (affiliated with Advanced Vision Care), where the surgery will be performed, is among the first 15 centers in the country to house the laser.
“The femtosecond laser can perform several steps of the cataract operation in an automated and more predictable fashion than is currently practiced. It promises to achieve greater accuracy in optical outcomes and will be available as an option for selected cases,” stated Dr. Masket.
Dr. Fram concurred, “We’re thrilled to offer this new technology and procedure to patients, and look forward to making it available to other surgeons in the community through our surgery center. We truly pride ourselves in staying ahead of the curve in medical technology, and this new Premium Laser Cataract Surgery is very exciting technology.”
Advanced Vision Care will offer Premium Laser Cataract Surgery beginning September 27, 2011. Specialty Surgery Center in Beverly Hills will be the only location in the Los Angeles area, and one of only fifteen locations in the United States to offer this technology and procedure
