What is Laser Cataract Surgery?

The restorative ability of cataract surgery has come a long way over the past 10 years.

The continued evolution of the femtosecond laser to perform the majority of the cataract procedure (rather than the older manual method) allows the surgeon and patient to aim for even greater accuracy when calculating postoperative uncorrected vision. This spectacle independence is what so many patients want and, until the past decade, even the best cataract surgeon could assure only about 50% of the time. It is interesting that the average likelihood of spectacle independence after LASIK or PRK surgery (Laser Vision Correction) is over 98%. Historically, these same goals after the removal of cataracts have only been achieved approximately half the time.

Over the past decade there have been two advances that have revolutionized modern day cataract surgery and have allowed our predictability and accuracy to now rival our LASIK results! The first of these two additions is the approval of the femtosecond laser device to do the majority of the cataract procedure. This allows for absolute accuracy of incision placement, cataract removal, intraocular lens placement and correction of any residual astigmatism. The second advance has been the addition of numerous new Advanced Technology Intraocular Lens designs (ATIOL’s) that allow us to correct distance as well as near vision and grant many more patients greater freedom from glasses or contacts.
