Feinerman Vision Center now offers the latest and most precise method of cataract surgery. The LenSx laser by Alcon is a new computerized system that allows the surgeon to program precise surgical cuts using a cool femtosecond laser—resulting in faster patient recovery.
Cataracts occur when protein builds up and clouds the eye’s natural lens, causing blurry vision. Traditional cataract surgery requires a manual incision with a blade in order for the surgeon to remove the clouded lens and replace it with a clear intraocular lens (IOL). Although this time-tested technique is generally very safe and widely practiced, cuts made by a femtosecond laser are cleaner and heal more quickly than those made by a microkeratome blade. LenSx is the first computerized system developed to employ femtosecond laser technology for laser refractive cataract surgery.
The dimensions of each individual’s eyes are unique. With LenSx, each patient’s measurements can now be scanned and programmed into the system. The computer is equipped with an optical coherence tomographer that scans the eye and produces three-dimensional images of different parts of the patient’s eye. This scanner also works with a video microscope that allows the ophthalmic surgeon to precisely plan and execute each laser incision—providing consistent and replicable results that are tailored to each unique patient.
