Laser Cataract Surgery
Our doctors utilize the Femtolaser to perform certain parts of the cataract procedure in applicable cases. The Femtolaser utilizes very high speed laser bursts to make incisions in various parts of the eye to aid in the surgery. The laser incisions are very precise and we hope they will add to the safety of an already very safe procedure.
One particular application of the Femtolaser that is proving valuable is it’s ability to create incisions in the cornea which can reduce astigmatism. These incisions have been utilized for many years, but previously they were cut with a hand-held blade. The Femtolaser creates these in a more predictable and precise manner than the manual procedure.
