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. That is why our team employs the LenSx® technology to map each patient’s eye prior to surgery allowing for unparalleled accuracy.
The advanced LenSx® laser is designed specifically for performing the most important parts of cataract surgery. LenSx ® 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.
