Why Opt for Laser Cataract Surgery?
While traditional cataract surgery has been around for a while and has really good results, opting for laser cataract surgery offers a few benefits over the traditional method. The laser incisions have been found to seal and heal better than an incision made with a blade. Another benefit is that with laser cataract surgery, the energy used in the phacoemulsification stage, where the cataract is broken up with vibrations, is less than in traditional cataract surgery. This helps to reduce the risk of complications, such as bleeding or other issues.
Finally, with laser cataract surgery patients often opt to go with a multifocal lens implant. This means that after the surgery, those patients will have less dependence on corrective lenses compared to the traditional method of cataract surgery.
About Laser Cataract Surgery
Cataract surgery is a quick, safe and painless procedure that is performed on over 3 million Americans each year. Dr. Shatz uses the LenSx cataract laser to create the most precise incisions possible and to gently divide the cataract into small segments – replacing blades, and virtually eliminating the need for ultrasound energy. Additionally, the LenSx laser can treat astigmatism, which in combination with a multifocal intraocular lens can provide one with permanent independence from eyeglasses after cataract surgery.
