If you are experiencing the onset of cataracts you know how difficult seeing can be. You may be struggling with night vision or you might not be able to tell the difference between pairs of socks. You may even have sensitivity to sunlight. Fortunately, cataract surgery can help you to regain what you've lost, both in terms of your vision and your quality of life. Now, a technological breakthrough is available for use in cataract surgery. Our doctors were among the first practices in the United States to have this breakthrough technology and have been using LenSx® since early 2012. When you choose to have your surgery performed with the LenSx® laser, you'll enjoy a truly innovative solution that allows for customization in cataract surgery. A bladeless, computer-controlled laser allows the surgeon to plan and perform your surgery to exact individualized specifications, not attainable with past cataract surgery methods. 

The LenSx® Laser is a fully-targeted, image-guided femtosecond laser designed specifically for refractive cataract surgery. Using a customizable 3-D surgical platform, it allows your surgeon to visualize, customize and perform many of the most challenging steps of cataract surgery:

  • Anterior capsulotomy
  • Lens fragmentation
  • All corneal incisions
  • Correction of astigmatism
