About Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery

Our laser-assisted surgical solutions use a femtosecond laser to replace handheld surgical instruments during our cataract and glaucoma treatments.  We use advanced technology, called optical coherence tomography to create a detailed map and surgical plan for the incisions needed to access your natural lens. Using this plan, the femtosecond laser will create a perfectly shaped, sized, and centered circular opening to break the cataract into tiny pieces that are removed with gentle suction.

Once the cataract is removed, we will place an intraocular cataract lens (IOL) where the natural lens was. We offer several IOL options, each with unique features to meet the needs of each patient. Prior to your laser cataract surgery, our team will meet with you to determine which IOL would be best for your lifestyle and visual needs. Recovery from your surgery is very short, with many patients noticing a remarkable visual improvement within 24 hours.

The Benefits of Laser Cataract Surgery

There are several advantages to using a laser for cataract removal. Our surgeons have found that laser surgery is simpler and more predictable than traditional methods. The accuracy of the laser allows for more precise incisions, and using the laser to break up the cataract leads to fewer complications than using ultrasound energy. Additionally, using a laser makes centering positioning the IOL easier, which leads to better outcomes.
