Laser Cataract Surgery

Femtosecond Cataract Laser

Cataract surgery has made some incredible advancements over the years. Now, cataract surgery in Medical Vision Institute in Lexington is performed using a no-patch, no-stitch, no-shot procedure and it only takes a few minutes to complete. Best of all, recovery time is minimal and patients can usually drive the very next day!  With traditional cataract surgery, surgeons use manual blades or instruments to create the necessary incisions within your eye in order to perform cataract surgery. Now, Dr. Dudee and the Medical Vision Institute in Lexington has options that can utilize femtosecond laser technology to make many of the necessary steps of cataract surgery instead of a blade. This advancement in technology takes an already proven procedure and makes it even more precise, more predictable and better than every before. Laser-Assisted cataract surgery is very helpful when patients have dense cataracts. The laser technology can take the dense cataract and turn it into several smaller pieces which makes it easier for removal. This allows for a much faster procedure and can promote a faster recovery time.

 

Laser Cataract technology is also very helpful when patients elect to have a premium lens implant to reduce or eliminate their need for reading glasses or bifocals. When performing laser cataract surgery, the precision made in the opening of the lens capsule is very helpful in optimizing premium lens implant outcomes.
