The physicians of Graystone Eye are proud to offer patients both traditional and laser assisted cataract surgery options. Laser assisted cataract surgery is a new technology used to safely remove cataracts and restore vision. With the addition of the LENSAR ™ Laser System, our surgeons now have the ability to tailor patient’s cataract procedures to better fit their needs.
With the LENSAR ™ Laser System, cataracts can be removed in a more refined manner, while ensuring precise size, shape, and location of incisions. By combining computer controlled laser technology with advanced 3D imaging, laser cataract surgery is customized to meet each patient’s visual needs, resulting in better visual outcomes and decreased dependency on glasses or contacts. This laser system is comparable to the same laser technology that is being used in LASIK procedures.
LENSAR, Inc., is a leader in the development and commercialization of the next-generation laser and advanced 3D reconstruction technology for refractive cataract surgery. If you would like to learn more about having a laser assisted cataract procedure, talk to your Graystone Eye surgeon for more details.
The lens in your eye, which helps you focus, is made of water and protein. As we age, the protein can clump together, making the lens cloudy. This cloudy area is called a cataract. A cataract needs to be removed when it impairs your vision and everyday activities, like driving, reading, or watching television. Nearly 4 million cataract surgeries are performed in the United States each year, remaining one of the most common and safest procedures in the country.
