Laser Cataract Surgery

Femtosecond LASER Cataract Surgery

Basic cataract surgery has helped millions of patients regain their site and is the most commonly performed surgery in the United States with over 3 million performed annually.  Recent advancements have made basic cataract surgery even safer and more precise with the advent of the femtosecond laser.

This laser accomplishes many of the more difficult steps in cataract surgery in just a matter of seconds, making it easier to remove the cloudy lens fragments and center the lens implant. In addition, the laser can reduce or eliminate your corneal astigmatism so that you will potentially see more clearly after cataract surgery. Insurance carriers and Medicare do not cover the additional costs associated with the laser because its uses are considered non-covered services. For additional information see the informative video below.
