Until recently, cataract surgery required the use of a manual surgical blade to open the eye and capsule supporting the lens. This method increases the chance of variability affecting outcomes. With recent LenSx® FDA approval, however, surgeons now have the ability to consistently reproduce incisions without blades. The precision of the laser’s incisions eliminates several variables that have complicated cataract surgery for the past 40 years. Recent results demonstrate that the LenSx® Laser is up to ten times more precise than manual portions of the cataract surgical procedure. Also, laser cataract surgery is customized for each unique eye and performs an advanced astigmatism treatment to ensure the very best visual result.
