Laser Cataract Surgery
Introducing Alcon LenSx Laser Technology
Alcon’s advanced LenSx laser offers you a precision-based solution for your eyes. A bladeless computer controlled laser surgery planned and performed to exacting, individualized specifications not attainable with other surgical methods.
Customized laser cataract surgery for your eyes only
While all human eyes share the same basic anatomical structure, every eye is just a bit different in terms of size, depth, curvature of the cornea and other key features which is why every eye must be carefully measured and mapped prior to cataract surgery. While these measurements have been routinely performed prior to surgery, the LenSx® laser uses a range of highly-advanced technologies – including integrated optical coherence tomography (OCT) – to capture incredibly precise, high-resolution images of your eyes. These images – and the measurements and data they provide – are then used to plan and perform a surgery to exacting specifications not attainable with traditional surgery.
What is the LenSx® laser?
The LenSx® laser provides patients with computer controlled precision as it automates some of the most challenging steps of refractive cataract surgery. The laser replaces the traditional hand-held blade to optimize all incisions for enhanced, reproducible surgical performance. This break-through technology provides the surgeon with real-time three dimensional visualization for true customization of your lens replacement procedure.
When you choose the LenSx® laser approach, you will enjoy the benefits of:
a bladeless procedure
a customized procedure
a premium surgical experience
Ask your eye doctor if cataract surgery with the LenSx® laser is right for you
Cataract surgery using the LenSx® laser is an advanced technological option available, but it may not be right for you. Talk to your eye care professional about all available options before you decide how to proceed.
In recommending a mode of cataract surgery and a cataract replacement lens, your eye care professional will take into account many aspects of your eye health. He or she will also consider your general health and lifestyle preferences.
