Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery
Dr. Kessler is now performing cataract surgery using the LenSx femtosecond laser. The LenSx laser is the most technologically advanced option for cataract patients today
The role of this laser in cataract surgery is to assist or replace several critical aspects of traditional manual cataract surgery. The laser will be used to correct astigmatism.
A femtosecond laser is cool laser that emits pulses of energy with extremely short durations. For nearly a decade, femtosecond lasers have helped surgeons perform bladeless LASIK with precision and safety. The LenSx laser now allows surgeons to deliver the same benefits of precise femtosecond laser technology to the cataract procedure. That means cataract surgery is more precise, predictable, reproducible and safe.
Dr. Kessler uses the laser to perform several critical steps of traditional cataract surgery with a computer-guided laser, the LenSx laser. This laser makes cataract surgery more accurate and predictable.
