WHICH PROCEDURE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

Catalys Laser SystemCataract surgery is one of the most common surgeries in the world and is extremely safe and effective.

In traditional cataract surgery, our surgeons make incisions in the cornea using handheld blades to access the cataract. Our surgeons then use a surgical instrument to manually open the lens capsule that holds the cataract. The goal is to make the corneal incisions precise and the opening in the lens capsule circular, centered, and the correct size to fit the replacement lens.

With laser-assisted cataract surgery, our surgeons use a computer to map your eye giving them a real-time 3D image in which to guide the laser. The laser then makes the corneal incisions with exceptional accuracy. Moreover, the laser creates the circular opening with the exact size, shape, and location desired.

Our physicians also use the laser to break up and soften the hard cataract. Softening the lens with the Catalys® laser enables our surgeons to then remove the cataract more gently and with significantly less ultrasound energy than is used in traditional cataract surgery.  This gentle, low energy approach can reduce inflammation and help speed visual recovery.

WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM CATARACT SURGERY?

WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM CATARACT SURGERY?

Your surgeon will remove the cloudy lens, the cataract, and replace it with a clear lens implant. The specifics of this lens depend on how willing you are to wear glasses after surgery. We offer two pathways for you: a Restored Vision Pathway and an Enhanced Vision Pathway. If you don’t mind wearing glasses for most activities, the Restore Vision Pathway is perfect. However, if you would like to have the best possible vision without glasses, the Enhance Vision Pathway with laser-assisted cataract surgery, is a great option with great visual outcomes.  Understanding your visual expectations and desires will help our surgeons recommend the best surgical option for your individual needs.
