What is Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery And How Is It Different From Traditional Surgery?
Bladeless laser cataract surgery uses a computer-guided laser for many critical steps of cataract surgery, whereas traditional cataract surgery is done manually with a blade. Our Alcon LenSx® Bladeless Laser increases precision by automating the most challenging steps. The high definition imaging provides real-time, three-dimensional images that enable our skilled surgeons, Dr. Robert Friedman, Dr. Cathleen McCabe and Dr. Brian Foster, to offer patients the most gentle, accurate and predictable outcomes. And the laser can even treat astigmatism.
Why did The Eye Associates Decide On The Alcon LenSx® Bladeless Laser?
The Eye Associates has always offered our patients cutting-edge treatments with a proven track record. The Alcon LenSx® Laser was the first FDA approved laser for all current cataract surgery laser applications. It has the longest trackrecord, compared to other lasers on the market, as it has been used for the most laser cataract procedures in the U.S. and worldwide.
