Laser Cataract Surgery

Traditional vs. Laser Cataract Surgery

Traditional Cataract Surgery creates incisions using a surgical blade and using phacoemulsification and ultrasound technology, breaks up the old, cloudy lens for extraction.

Laser Cataract Surgery utilizes the Femtosecond Laser to create machine-precise incisions and breaks the old, cloudy lens into ready to remove pieces for extraction.

Astigmatic Correction
at the Time of Surgery

Astigmatism is the shape of your cornea that can impact the clarity and quality of your vision. At the time of cataract surgery, this can be corrected with incisions made by the Femtosecond laser. The Femtosecond laser performs machine-precise limbal relaxing incisions at the time of use to correct the astigmatism and give you the best chance at clear vision following surgery.

Less Energy
in the Eye

Compared to traditional cataract surgery, the Femtosecond laser allows for the usage of less energy in the process of breaking up your natural lens. By utilizing less energy in the eye during surgery, it can help with protecting the sensitive structures of the eye and help with recovery during the post-operative period.
