Cataract Removal – Cataract Surgery Georgia

Alcon LenSx® Laser Cataract Surgery:

The LenSx® laser improves the way modern cataract laser eye surgery is performed. It is 100% customized for your eye. Until recently, cataract surgery required the use of a manual surgical blade to open the eye and capsule supporting the lens. Manual incisions increased the chance of outcome variability.
With LenSx® laser FDA approval, eye surgeons now have consistent incisions that are up to ten times more precise than the manual portions of the cataract surgical procedure. Customized for each unique eye, laser cataract surgery performs advanced astigmatism treatments to ensure the very best visual result. The precision and customization of the LenSx® laser is perfectly suited to patients seeking an improved visual outcome through an advanced lens implant, like the ReStor® or Toric® lens implants.

Standard Cataract Removal using Phacoemulsification :

The standard technique for removing cataracts involves making a small incision in the cornea and breaking up the cataract using small pulses of sound waves.  After removing the cataract, an intraocular lens implant is inserted into the lens capsule to replace the cataract.  For more information about cataracts and surgical techniques for removing cataracts, click on this link:
