The LenSx laser system is the latest FDA-approved advancement in cataract surgery. The LenSx system is based on the same technology used during bladeless LASIK procedures and gives eye surgeons image guided control during the procedure. In addition, it allows eye surgeons to plan and customize cataract surgeries based on the unique characteristics of each patient's eyes. The advanced laser in the LenSX system creates extremely precise incisions and breaks up the cloudy lens for easier removal as well as providing surgeons with the ability to correct astigmatism with more accuracy and predictability than before.
The LenSx Laser Cataract surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure. The LenSx laser replaces the need for hand-held blades during cataract surgery further improving accuracy, healing time and ultimately your results. More than 99% of patients who undergo cataract surgery rank their vision as significantly improved. In addition, patients experience improved overall quality of life following the LenSx Laser Cataract surgery, because their improved vision causes them to feel more confident, more safe and independent.
