No matter what aspects of life you value most – working, golfing, reading or just taking in the scenery while strolling around town – chances are they’re highly or wholly-dependent on your sight. So if your vision is clouded by cataracts, you may actually be losing the ability to enjoy the very things, places and people that make life worth living. Fortunately, cataract surgery can help you regain what you’ve lost, both in terms of your vision and your quality of life. Now a technological breakthrough is available for use in cataract surgery.

What is the Lensx Laser?
The LenSx Laser is an advanced, precision based technology that operates with unmatched precision and computer-control, helping surgeons to customize the procedure to your eye. It is a technologically advanced option for cataract patients. When you choose the LenSx Laser, you’ll enjoy a range of vital benefits.
A Custom Tailored Solution for Your Eyes
While all human eyes share the same basic anatomical structure, every eye is just a bit different in terms of size, depth, curvature of the cornea and other key features. Which is why, every eye must be carefully measured and mapped prior to cataract surgery. While these measurements have been routinely performed prior to surgery, the LenSx Laser uses a range of highly advanced technologies – including integrated optical coherence tomography (OCT) – to capture incredibly precise, high-resolution images of your eyes. These images—and the measurements and data they provide – are then used to plan and perform a surgery to exacting specifications not attainable with traditional surgery.
Computer Control to Ensure Unmatched Precision and Accuracy Every Step of the Way
The LenSx Laser adds computer-control to key steps of cataract surgery. Its unique software control system analyzes high-resolution OCT images of your eye; helps the surgeon to design a customized procedure; and then, visualizes and performs the procedure on command from the surgeon! To further enhance accuracy, a patient interface connects your eye to the image-guided surgical unit, so that both the LenSx Laser computer and the surgeon commanding it have precise, real-time images at all times during the laser procedure.
