LenSx® Laser Cataract Surgery

Carey Vision Medical Group is excited to bring our patients LenSx® Laser Cataract Surgery. The LenSx® Laser signifies a bold leap forward in cataract surgery. The first femtosecond laser cleared for use in cataract surgery, it brings image-guided computer precision to refractive cataract surgeons.

The LenSx® Laser Cataract Surgery is a technologically-advanced procedure, that offers a new level of precision and reproducibility in ophthalmic surgery. The LenSx® Laser is designed to bring a new level of accuracy and reproducibility to refractive cataract surgery. Early proponents of the system report that, however accurate their manual procedures seemed in the past, they see measurable improvements when using the LenSx® Laser1.

The precision of the LenSx® Laser has been tested in a series of recent clinical studies. Zoltan Z. Nagy, MD of Semmelweis University in Budapest, evaluated the system's ability to perform anterior capsulotomies, lens fragmentation and create self-sealing corneal incisions1.

Dr. Nagy demonstrated enhanced surgical accuracy and reproducibility:

  • All anterior capsulotomies created with the LenSx® Laser achieved accurate centration and intended diameter, with no radial tears or adverse events seen.
  • Corneal incisions created with the LenSx® Laser were highly reproducible, with precise dimensions and geometry.
  • In the same study, only 10% of manually created capsulorhexis achieved a similar diameter accuracy of +/-0.25 mm1,2. These results can be seen in the diagram, below.

Diameter Accuracy of the LenSx® Laser Versus Manual Capsulorhexis1

Only 10% of manual capsulorhexis achieved diameter accuracy of +/- 0.25 mm.

 

 

Enhanced Reproducibility

The LenSx® Laser can perform anterior capsulotomy, lens fragmentation and all corneal incisions with tremendous reproducibility. It is also used to reduce small amounts of astigmatism, making the post-operative vision even better than before.

The system performs surgery according to your surgeon’s preferences. From clean three-plane corneal incisions to customized fragmentation patterns, we can create predictable cuts that carry through subsequent steps of refractive cataract surgery.
