Cataract surgery at The Eye Associates has always been a “miracle of sight,” but now bladeless laser cataract surgery has made it more precise, more accurate, more gentle, and it can even correct astigmatism. Many patients who have worn glasses for their entire life are now less dependent on glasses, and some have the joy of being glasses-free.

Alcon LenSx® Bladeless Laser vs Other Lasers
The Eye Associates offers 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 track record, compared to other lasers on the market, as it has been used for the most laser cataract procedures in the U.S. and worldwide. Studies show that the laser uses less energy, therefore there is less risk of corneal swelling, which allows for faster healing. And the surgery is so fast and easy that many patients celebrate their new vision by going out to breakfast or lunch right after the procedure.
