LenSx Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery
During non-laser cataract surgery, the natural lens of the eye is removed and replaced with an artificial lens implant using traditional surgical implements and blades. Laser assisted cataract surgery allows your surgeon to perform cataract surgery without the use of any blades.
The LenSx femtosecond laser utilizes a beam of laser light to create the necessary incisions for cataract surgery. The size, shape and location of each incision are precisely programmed by Dr. Porter allowing a more predictable and reproducible procedure.
This state-of-the art technology combined with the surgeon’s skills produce extraordinary results. The level of customization obtained with LenSx laser cataract surgery is revolutionary and virtually unattainable with conventional surgical methods.
Once the LenSx laser procedure is complete and the cataract is removed, a refractive lens implant is placed inside the eye to improve your vision.
