Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery

Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery (LACS)

Since 1986, we have been performing cataract surgery in our own surgery suite, with our own nursing and technical staff, and the most up-to-date technology and surgical equipment. 

Doctors Snyder and Currie are committed to making your visual results the very best your eyes are capable of seeing.

The most recent advance is Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery (LACS) using Lensar Prescision Laser System, which provides the most precise and gentlest method for correction of astigmatism and cataract removal. LACS brings the latest technological innovations in eye surgery to help obtain the best possible visual outcome. LACS maximizes the opportunity for postoperative independence from glasses for many activities. It involves:

 

  • Gentle laser assisted removal of the cloudy, optically imperfect cataract
  • Unique, high resolution, 3-D view of your eye
  • Implantation of the appropriate intraocular replacement lens
  • Precise laser assisted management of corneal astigmatism
  • Increased independence from glasses   

 

Although it’s common belief that lasers have been used in cataract surgery for years, this is not true. With the introduction of the Laser System, laser cataract surgery has become a reality, and your surgeon can now remove your cataract in a more advanced way. Laser cataract surgery is made even more precise by a unique imaging system that provides your surgeon with a sophisticated, 3-D view of your eye to help plan and treat your cataract.

With this advanced technology, your surgeon can offer you a better, more precise cataract removal procedure that is customized to your eye’s own unique size and shape. If you have astigmatism, the Laser can guide your surgeon to correct it for you.

In selecting LACS, you can choose the high definition Single Vision option for excellent distance vision, or the versatile Multi-Vision option to minimize your dependence on glasses for both distance and near vision. Our newest and most technologically advanced option, the Light Adjustable Lens (LAL), is the first and only lens that can be customized AFTER cataract surgery. This option allows for the unique ability to adjust and preview your vision until it meets your personal desires and lifestyle requirements.
