Laser Cataract Surgery

Incisions during cataract surgery are necessary to allow your South Florida cataract doctor to gently break up and remove the cloudy lens. Your new replacement Intraocular Lens (IOL) is also put into place through this incision.

Traditional cataract surgery involves making the incision with a hand-held blade and using an ultrasonic device to break up and remove the lens. While this method can still be effective, at CorrectVision Laser Institute we have also invested in laser cataract surgery technology: the LenSx® laser.

IOL in an eye with Cataracts

LenSx was the first femtosecond laser approved by the FDA for blade-free cataract surgery. It has been used in over 400,000 cataract procedures worldwide.

How LenSx Works

The femtosecond technology uses automated, computer-controlled laser pulses to create incisions on the lens capsule, crystalline lens and cornea for precisely tailored and accurate results. Each procedure is based on a high-resolution, 3D surgical platform for both the incision and lens fragmentation. For most patients the procedure takes between 15-30 minutes and only causes mild discomfort after the procedure.

Benefits of Blade-free Cataract Surgery

  • Procedure is quicker and more comfortable
  • Surgery is more precise for your unique eye and results are more accurate
  • A 3D map is made of your eye prior to surgery and used during each step of the procedure to allow your doctor real-time visualization
  • The laser is programmable and computer guided
