What are Cataracts?
How Do They Affect My Eyes?
Your eye works a lot like a camera, using a lens to focus on an image. If your camera lens became cloudy, you’d have a hard time viewing the world around you.
Just like a camera, the lenses in your eyes can become cloudy as you age, making it harder for you to see. This clouding is a natural condition, known as cataracts.
With today’s technology, Visual Health can safely remove your cataract, and implant a replacement lens to restore your vision. Learn why adding the LENSAR® Laser System to your advanced cataract procedure is the superior decision for your vision.
What is LENSAR?
How Does It Improve My Advanced Cataract Procedure?
Although it’s common belief that lasers have been used in cataract surgery for years, this is not true. With the introduction of the LENSAR® Laser System, laser cataract surgery has become a reality, and your Visual Health surgeon can now remove your cataract in a more advanced way. Laser cataract surgery is made even more precise by LENSAR’s Cataract Laser with Augmented Reality™ technology, a unique imaging system that provides your surgeon with a sophisticated, 3-D view of your eye to help plan and treat your cataract.
With this advanced technology, your Visual Health surgeon can offer you a more precise cataract removal procedure that is customized to your eye’s own unique size and shape.

- A system designed with comfort in mind, so you can relax, knowing the latest technology available is being used to treat one of your most valuable senses – your sight.
Will LENSAR Make A Difference For Me?
Why Should I Elect To Have An Advanced Cataract Procedure?
Advanced cataract surgery is designed to improve your vision and reduce your dependency on glasses or contact lenses. During your procedure, your surgeon will use the most advanced technology available, including premium intraocular lenses and the LENSAR® Cataract Laser with Augmented Reality™, an advanced imaging system.
LENSAR’s superior Augmented Reality imaging system represents a more intelligent approach to cataract surgery. With Augmented Reality, your surgeon can see everything inside your eye in greater detail. This allows the surgeon to plan the surgery better, to precisely soften the cataract in preparation for removal, and to ensure the appropriate condition for the most accurate placement of your intraocular lens.
LENSAR’s precision, imaging, and laser incisions helps your surgeon ensure that the cataract is safely removed and that the new intraocular lens is perfectly placed, resulting in better visual outcomes.
