The femtosecond laser allows us to make precise incisions into the cornea and parts of the lens prior to cataract surgery. With the laser, you can expect the following:

  • Improved wound structure, which decreases the risk for infection and wound leakage.
  • Decrease in the amount of energy usage within the eye, which may reduce complications and allow for faster healing.
  • A circular (as opposed to an irregularly shaped) opening to place the new IOL. This leads to more predictable outcomes.
  • Correction of mild to moderate amounts of astigmatism, which may make you less dependent on glasses following the surgery.
  • Laser technology combines precision performance and computer-guided accuracy to complement your surgeon’s skills. Not everyone is a candidate for laser-assisted cataract surgery. Your surgeon will evaluate your eyes and discuss all of your options with you.
