Laser Cataract Surgery
Cataract Surgery is one of the most commonly performed procedures at this facility. Surgical removal of the clouded lens (cataract) is the only way to completely restore lost vision. A cataract can progress very slowly, and, in some cases, the eye’s lens will simply thicken without clouding, causing only loss in distance vision. In those earlier stages, or when clouding of the lens isn’t present, symptoms can often be addressed with stronger glasses or contact lenses, brighter lighting, or the use of a magnifying glass.
When vision loss progresses to the point where it affects your daily life and/or safety, surgery to remove the lens will likely be necessary. In situations where a cataract is in combination with one or more diseases or conditions, your doctor also may recommend surgery even if your vision is only mildly impaired. This could happen if your cataract is interfering with the examination or treatment of other parts of your eye.
When a cataract is the only disease present, surgery is, in the vast majority of cases, very successful. In fact, millions of people in the U.S. undergo this vision-saving procedure each year.
The LENSAR Laser System allows your cataract surgeon to offer you a better, more precise cataract removal procedure that is customized to your eye. With the LENSAR Laser System, your cataract surgeon can remove your cataract in a more advanced way. Using the LENSAR Laser System ensures that your customized cataract procedure is performed with laser precision. This is because of Augmented Reality, a unique imaging system that provides your surgeon with a reconstructed 3-D view of your eye, in order to help plan and treat your cataract.
When a person’s eyelids begin to droop they can become puffy and develop bags underneath them. It may be necessary to have blepharoplasty to prevent partial vision loss. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a solution that is chosen every year by a hundred thousand people. The surgical procedure removes excess muscle, fat and skin from both the lower and upper lids.
