Cataract Surgery – Is Laser Really Better?

All your questions about laser cataract surgery answered!

Cataracts are cloudy areas in the lens of your eye that can be dangerous to your vision. If symptoms of cataracts – like blurry vision, double vision, light sensitivity, or changes in the way you see colors –  are interfering with your quality of life, your doctor may recommend cataract surgery.

While this procedure may sound frightening or overwhelming, modern cataract surgery is one of the most common and safe procedures performed today. Using advanced technology, our eye surgeons are experienced in restoring vision loss and protecting you from the dangerous effects of cataracts.

During cataract surgery, your cloudy lens is removed and replaced with a clear artificial lens. Traditionally, this has been done manually. In recent years, there has been a trend toward advanced laser surgery, which eliminates several steps of traditional cataract surgery.

Is Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery Safe?

The femtosecond laser is an exciting advance in the way doctors are treating cataracts. With this cutting-edge laser technology, cataract surgery becomes more automated. This allows our surgeons to be more accurate with their procedures, resulting in a safer form of surgery.
