Advanced Laser Technology
What is Laser Cataract Surgery?
The CATALYS® laser is an advanced precision-based technology that partners unmatched precision and control, helping Katzen Eye Group surgeons to customize the procedure to your eye. It is unquestionably the most technologically advanced option for cataract patients. When you choose to have cataract surgery with this laser, you’ll enjoy an array of dynamic benefits. CATALYS® features real-time diagnostic tools for an exact visual representation of what’s going on inside the eye during the procedure.
Much like our fingerprints, each of us has our own subtle differences when it comes to the eye, with the size, depth, lens position, and corneal curvature all ranging extensively. The CATALYS® advanced 3D imaging technology builds a 3D map of your eye and tailors the treatment to that map, allowing for unparalleled accuracy.
The advanced laser is designed specifically for performing the most important parts of cataract surgery. CATALYS® uses a laser source to produce femtosecond laser pulses; an aiming system to localize specific targets in the eye; an optical delivery system to accurately deliver laser pulses to desired targets in the eye, and a computer controller to accomplish clinical procedures.
At your cataract surgery consultation, Katzen Eye Group specialists will discuss the process with you to make the best decision for your situation and goals. We pride ourselves on delivering the best in technology and technique to make this important procedure as easy as possible for each patient.
Cataract surgery has traditionally used a diamond blade to create several small incisions during the treatment. With the Catalys® cutting-edge laser technology, our team of experienced physicians is capable of laser precision with a speedy, more efficient procedure and a more rapid recovery time for our patients.
