Take the Cataract Self Test

Femtosecond Assisted Cataract Surgery

This latest technological development enhances cataract surgery with the precision and accuracy of femtosecond laser. The laser creates corneal incisions, astigmatism reducing incisions, opens the lens capsule, and softens the cataract with extreme precision and accuracy.

Femtosecond laser allows for more precise centration of lens implants, which is especially important for multifocal lenses. Because less ultrasound energy is required for removal of the cataract, patients usually experience less post-operative swelling in the cornea, which results in faster recovery.
