About Bladeless Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery
Although cataract surgery is one of the safest and most successful procedures performed in medicine today and has a better than 95% success rate, laser-assisted cataract surgery improves the precision of many of the key surgical steps, providing even better visual outcomes and making cataract surgery even safer.
The same technology that is used for all-laser LASIK surgery allows Dr. Elmquist and Dr. Eccles-Brown to plan and customize each cataract procedure to the unique characteristics of each patient’s eye.
The computer-guided, surgeon-controlled laser has several advantages when compared to traditional cataract surgery:
- Allows for safer and faster lens removal
- Automates three steps of cataract surgery that were previously performed manually
- Reduces the need for surgical blades for corneal incisions and anterior capsulotomy
- Allows for unparalleled surgical precision
- Improves the accuracy of placement of the new intraocular lens implant
- Can create precise, customized incisions that are tailored to each patient’s unique eye anatomy
- Reduces the chances of thermal injury to tissues inside the eye and lessens recovery time
- Corrects for astigmatism via laser instead of manual incision, reducing the need for glasses following surgery
