Laser Cataract Surgery Benefits
During a completely bladeless procedure called femtosecond laser technology, laser cataract surgery is completed in less than 20 minutes and is painless. The doctor uses the LenSx cataract laser because it creates very precise incisions and replaces the need for ultrasound energy, which can cause swelling and temporary blurred vision. Cataract surgery may be inevitable for those over 40, but it doesn’t have to cause you worry. Laser cataract surgery is technologically advanced, and you are able to walk out of the procedure 30 to 60 minutes after it’s over and resume life in your homes in Fort Lauderdale, Weston, Palm Beach, and Boca Raton. No overnight hospital stay is required and there is no long-term recovery period.
Seeing Young Again with Laser Cataract Surgery
Cataracts can cause halo effects and glare, making it difficult driving at night, reading, or playing certain sports. This is because cataracts cause clouding of the natural lens creating dull or dim vision. Untreated cataracts can worsen, making it more difficult to participate in certain activities. Laser cataract surgery is the most common surgical procedure today and more than 3 million people undergo this procedure each year. The benefit of laser cataract surgery is that it provides patients with the most advanced procedures, producing vision you had when you were younger. Our patients enjoy a full active lifestyle again and only use eye drops for a few weeks after the laser cataract surgery. Dr. Shatz says, “over 98% of our patients report to our staff that they can drive or read without glasses and contacts.” According to the doctor, laser cataract surgery has revolutionized the delivery of accurate, precise, and safe results. Laser cataract surgery will have you seeing young again. For more information on the laser cataract surgery visit www.sighttrust.com or call (877) 878-7890.
