Advanced Laser Cataract surgery using LenSx technology is now here in Charleston.
The FDA-approved LenSx laser system is the newest major advancement in cataract surgery. It’s based on the same femtosecond technology used during bladeless LASIK procedures. It gives the surgeon image-guided control and the ability to plan and customize every procedure to the unique characteristics of the patient’s eye. The advanced laser not only creates extremely precise cataract incisions and breaks up the cloudy lens for easier removal, it also has the ability to correct astigmatism with more accuracy and predictability than before.
Performed on an outpatient basis in our state-of-the-art facility, designed specifically for eye surgery, located in West Ashley, the procedure is generally quite comfortable. The LenSx laser replaces the need for hand-held blades during cataract surgery further improving accuracy, healing time and ultimately your results.
Many patients return to normal activities the day after cataract surgery. You can expect your vision to be crisper and clearer and for colors to be more vivid following your cataract surgery. More than 95% of patients who undergo cataract surgery rank their vision as significantly improved. The benefits of better vision following cataract surgery include feeling safer, more independent and more confident.
