The eye surgeons at Heimer Eye Care are among a handful of ophthalmologists trained to perform the new state-of-the-art LenSx Laser Cataract surgery. These surgeries are performed at Mount Nittany Surgical Center.
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.
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 percent 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.
In non-laser cataract surgery, the surgeon makes incisions and removes the cloudy natural lens using traditional surgical instruments and blades. The LenSx laser performs several of the most critical steps of the surgical process with an image-guided femtosecond laser. Ask your eye doctor if cataract surgery with the LenSx laser is right for you.
