What is the LenSx® Laser and Why Should I Choose It For Mine or My Loved One's Cataract Surgery?

While our eyes all share the same basic anatomy, your eyes are totally unique when it comes to their size, depth, curvature and other key features.
The LenSx® Laser allows your surgeon, Dr. Woodcock, to plan and perform a procedure that is completely customized for each of your eyes!*

For more than a decade, femtosecond lasers have helped surgeons perform LASIK with unparalleled precision and accuracy. Now the LenSx® Laser Technology brings advanced accuracy and reproducibility to cataract surgery!*

Before, During and After Your Procedure

The technology behind the LenSx® Laser Technology captures high-resolution images of your eyes. These images yield precise measurements and data that help your surgeon plan and perform a procedure to exacting specifications.*
The LenSx® technology system's advanced, three-dimensional imaging helps your surgeon automate and execute the most challenging steps of traditional cataract surgery.*
The LenSx® technology is designed to increase the precision of cataract surgery. Many patients experience improved vision after two weeks, and they approach optimal vision between two and four months after their procedure.*

Traditional Bladed Cataract Surgery vs LenSx® Laser Cataract Surgery

So what's the difference?
A primary concern during any type of surgery, including cataract surgery, is patient safety.
The use of the LenSx® Laser technology to both make the initial incision and perform the removal of the cataract lens ranks superior in precision, safety and success.
Using the LenSx® Laser has proven to cause less disturbance inside the eye during surgery, as well as promote reduced swelling, inflammation and risk of infection post operatively, in comparison to the standard bladed method.
The LenSx® Laser Technology not only provides the safety we strive for but can lead to more accurate surgical and visual outcomes because of it's customization abilities and performance; keeping our patients happier, healthier and seeing their best!
