Yes, it is NOW POSSIBLE to perform cataract surgery with a LASER. Precise, computer-customized bladeless cataract surgery provide safe, customized precision techniques.
Alan Solinsky, MD, David Jeng, MD and Jeremy Hwang, MD have been selected to be among the first surgeons to perform bladeless cataract surgery in Connecticut and all of New England.The state of the art LenSx Laser is located at the Hartford Hospital Eye Surgery Center in Newington, CT.In 5 to 10 years, it is expected that most, if not all, cataract surgeries will be performed with a laser, but Dr. Solinsky, Dr. Jeng and Dr. Hwang have brought the future of cataract surgery to Connecticut and New England NOW.
The surgical removal was completely painless on all levels. Simply incredible for which I am truly grateful. Read the full testimonial»
Dr. Solinsky discusses cataract surgery on Medical Rounds:
Leading eye surgeons consider bladeless laser cataract surgery to be the wave of the future.
The FDA-approved LenSx laser system is based on the same femtosecond technology used during bladeless LASIK surgery.
It gives the surgeon unprecedented image-guided control and the ability to plan and customize every procedure to the unique characteristics of each patient’s eye. The laser’s increased precision and accuracy translate into better visual outcomes and may increase the likelihood of seeing well without glasses following cataract surgery.
The laser replaces the traditional hand-held blade to optimize all incisions for enhanced, reproducible surgical performance. The LenSx laser platform also integrates optical coherence tomography (OCT) to capture high-resolution images of your eyes. Its proprietary software control system analyzes these images of your eye; helps the surgeon to design a customized procedure; and then, visualizes and performs the procedure on command from the surgeon! For enhanced accuracy and safety, a patient interface connects your eye to the image-guided surgical unit, so that the surgeon has precise control of your eye throughout the procedure.
While we will continue to offer cataract surgery using traditional techniques, blade-free femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery offers significant advantages for many patients.
- Precision – the LenSx computer-guided laser offers a higher level of precision to cataract surgery. Scanning technology is used to carefully map and measure the eye. The laser makes precise micro-incisions to access the cataract and correct astigmatism. The laser creates a perfect circular opening in the cataract, which helps to optimize visual outcomes.
- Safety – the incisions are more secure and exact and the softened cataract can be removed with less ultrasonic power.
During your office visit, we will discuss the femtosecond laser surgery option with you and help you make your decision.
