Breakthrough Technology for Cataract Surgery: The Lensar Laser

What is the Lensar Laser?

The Lensar laser is a 3D imaging, laser-precise micro-incision system that allows your surgeon to remove your cataract with ease and 10x accuracy. This technology represents a major breakthrough in cataract surgery, offering patients a more precise and efficient procedure with better outcomes.

This technology is changing the way cataract surgery is performed and offers patients many benefits, including:

Increased accuracy – The Lensar laser system provides your surgeon with 3D images of your eye, allowing for more precise incisions. This leads to a quicker, more efficient surgery.

Better outcomes – With the increased accuracy of the Lensar laser, patients can expect better vision following surgery. In fact, many patients report seeing better than they did before their cataract developed.

Quicker surgery – The laser-precise incisions made by the Lensar laser allow for a quicker surgery. This means less time under anesthesia and a shorter recovery period.

When to Have Cataract Surgery

Most people think of cataracts as a problem associated with older age. However, cataracts can develop at any age. In fact, about 20% of Americans have cataracts by the time they reach 40 years old.

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may have cataracts and should see an ophthalmologist:

• Blurry vision

• Trouble seeing at night

• Halos around light

• Fading or yellowing of colors

• Frequent prescription changes in your glasses or

Cataracts usually develop slowly and painlessly, so you might not notice any vision problems at first. As cataracts progress, they will begin to interfere with your everyday activities, such as reading, driving, and watching television.

If you have cataracts, the best course of treatment is surgery. Cataract surgery is one of the most common and successful surgeries performed today. In fact, more than 3 million Americans have cataract surgery each year.
