Laser Cataract Surgery
Laser-assisted cataract removal is a recent breakthrough in cataract technology that is paving the way for the future of vision. This technology utilizes a femtosecond laser to make most of the crucial steps of cataract surgery, which is traditionally performed using a surgical blade and the surgeon’s hand. Laser cataract surgery takes an already safe and precise procedure and makes it more precise, more predictable and better than ever before.
LenSx Femtosecond Technology
At Heart of Texas Eye Institute, we use the Alcon LenSx laser. This technology is especially important for patients wanting to maximize their visual outcomes such as those electing for a premium lens implant or having an limbal relaxing incision (LRI) or toric lens implant for astigmatism correction.
Let it be known that laser cataract surgery is considered to be elective and is not covered by medical insurance. During your cataract examination, your surgeon will help you determine if this technology is beneficial for you.
