Custom Laser Cataract Surgery

Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery

Traditional cataract surgery has always involved the use of a diamond blade to create several small incisions during the procedure.  With LenSx, these incisions are now made with a laser.  This technology allows our surgeons to plan and perform cataract surgeries with laser precision.

With this advanced technology, your EyeHealth North West surgeons experience more control and precision; plus, LenSx features real-time diagnostic tools for an accurate visual of what’s going on inside the eye during the procedure.

When used in conjunction with one of our premium intraocular lenses, LenSx offers patients even more visual freedom from glasses after cataract surgery, helping maintain clear vision at all ranges of vision.

At your cataract consultation, you will be educated on the traditional blade-based approach and the LenSx laser-assisted approach to cataract surgery so that the best decision can be made for your situation and goals.

Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Cataract Surgery

What are the advantages of LenSx vs. traditional cataract surgery?
  • Precision: LenSx Automates the most challenging procedures in cataract surgery.  It creates the highest level of precision available with a cool laser instead of a blade.
  • Control: LenSx offers real time images to guide the surgeon for proper alignment.
  • Better astigmatism management than traditional methods.

How does LenSx reduce or eliminate astigmatism?
  • The LenSx laser places incisions on the cornea in specific areas to “relax” the eye to a more round shape (like a basketball)

What should I expect after surgery?
  • The ability to see more clearly.
  • You may begin noticing the improvement in as little as 24 hours.

How long does the LenSx laser procedure last?

  • At EyeHealth North West, Laser Cataract Surgery with the LenSx is an outpatient procedure taking an  average of 10-15 minutes
