LASER CATARACT SURGERY

Laser cataract surgery uses the latest technological advances to enhance various aspects of cataract surgery. 

The result is a more precise and predictable procedure that often results in quicker recovery and less inflammation as compared to traditional/manual cataract surgery.

It is NOT covered by Medicare or commercial insurance plans.

TAKE HOME POINTS OF LASER VS MANUAL CATARACT SURGERY

Laser Cataract Surgery: ​

  • Is customized BLADELESS surgery

  • Treats most common levels of ASTIGMATISM

  • Uses precision-guided 3-D technology to achieve more predictable and reproducible results

  • Provides a more controlled environment in the eye so there is less stress on the support structures in the eye

  • Allows for more efficient cataract removal

  • Has less inflammation which leads to quicker recovery and less risk of swelling in the eye

Laser softens the cataract = more efficient removal of the cataract

 = less inflammation and stress on the support structures of the lens
