Feinerman Vision Center introduces LenSx®, the first FDA approved laser assisted cataract surgery in the USA. The LenSx® laser is a new computerized system that allows the surgeon to program precise surgical cuts using a femtosecond laser—resulting in better predictability than conventional cataract surgery. If you are suffering from worsening vision or glare symptoms caused by cataracts, there is no better time to restore youthful vision and start living life to its fullest.
Cataracts occur when protein builds up and clouds the eye’s natural lens, causing worsening vision. For example, many people with cataracts notice difficulty driving from glare when approaching an oncoming car’s headlights. 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 more precise. LenSx® is the first computerized system developed to use 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 patient.
