To create the most precise incisions possible, Dr. Andrew Shatz uses laser cataract surgery. The LenSx cataract laser, after making the incision, will be used to cut the cataract into small pieces. Laser cataract surgery replaces blades and reduces the need for ultrasound energy. This type of surgery is called femtosecond laser technology. It is a cataract procedure performed without blades. Its accuracy has never been seen before. If you are from Palm Beach, Miami, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, Sunrise, Davie, FL, and the surrounding areas, and require laser cataract surgery, reach out to SightTrust Eye Institute.
Laser Cataract Surgery Differs from Traditional Cataract Surgery
Many believe cataract surgery is performed with a laser. The reality is that this quick and painless procedure uses an ultrasound probe. Over 3 million Americans have cataract surgery every year. In typical form of cataract surgery, a steel or diamond blade is used to make incisions in the eye. Once the incision is made, the surgeon will open the capsule around the cataract by using a needle or forceps. The cataract is then broken apart using ultrasound. Using ultrasound energy can cause swelling in the eye, which can blur vision temporarily. By choosing laser cataract surgery, it eliminates eye swelling and blurred vision. Patients from Palm Beach, Miami, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, Sunrise, Davie, FL., and the surrounding areas, who need cataract surgery, should discuss laser cataract surgery with our cataract surgeon.
