With LenSx® laser FDA approval, surgeons now have consistent incisions that are up to ten times more precise than the manual portions of the cataract surgical procedure. Customized for each unique eye, laser cataract surgery performs advanced astigmatism treatments to ensure the very best visual result. The precision and customization of the LenSx® laser is perfectly suited to patients seeking an improved visual outcome through an advanced lens implant, like the ReStor® or Toric® lens implants.
This "blade-free" laser approach to cataract surgery allows the surgeon to improve the predictability of the procedure, with increased precision, accuracy and faster healing time. Laser cataract surgery is the most precise and gentle way to remove a diseased lens. The procedure takes about 15 minutes.
The LenSx laser boosts our surgical potential since the precision of a laser trumps a handheld blade many times over, even a blade in the hands of a highly skilled surgeon. Laser cataract surgery is the approach I would recommend for all my parents," said Joseph Parisi, MD.
