In addition to traditional cataract surgery, The Eye Associates is pleased to offer Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery in our Outpatient Laser and Surgery Center in West Bradenton. Using Alcon’s LenSx® Laser, we are able to provide greater precision and customization to cataract surgery. The LenSx has an advanced imaging system that provides our cataract surgeons with a series of 3-dimensional, cross-sectional images of all of the parts of the eye related to cataract surgery, enabling them to program the femtosecond laser to make incisions that are predetermined in size and location. This adds a new level of accuracy to cataract surgery. By offering different fragmentation patterns, the laser is versatile in its treatment of specific lens densities, and this may reduce the overall ultrasound energy requirements necessary for cataract removal. These laser features contributes to a more gentle, less invasive surgical experience. The LenSx laser also is used when performing Clear Lens Replacement surgery for those that do not have a cataract and wish to get out of glasses.
