ALCON LENSX LASER
At Tenafly Eye Associates, we work hard to make sure
that the technology we offer our patients is current, state-of-the-art, and dependable. For this reason, we are happy to provide laser cataract surgery using the Alcon LensX Laser- the first femto second laser cleared for use in cataract surgery!
In traditional cataract surgery, your eye surgeon will typically use a metal blade, allowing for the creation of small incisions in the cornea. LensX laser technology allows for this to be done without the use of a blade and provides precise results in the removal of your cataracts. The LensX laser is additionally equipped with real-time diagnostic tools that provide visuals to your surgeon during your cataract surgery! The laser can be programmed to suit the needs of each individual patient, down to the degree, size, shape, and location of each incision. The LensX laser is reliable, predictable, and accurate.
Choosing the LensX laser system for your cataract surgery has many perks. Using the LensX laser, patients can expect the energy used for cataract removal to be reduced significantly as compared to traditional cataract surgery. Laser cataract surgery also has lower chances of complication, reduced recovery times, and results that will change your vision for the better and that will allow you to see life clearly.
Some patients are not candidates for laser cataract surgery. Prior to your surgery, you will need to consult your doctor in order to decide whether traditional or laser cataract removal is right for you. Our doctors at Tenafly Eye Associates are here to help you make the best choice for your eyes; feel free to request an appointment to discuss your cataract surgery, or, if you have questions, contact us today!
