Laser Cataract Surgery increases safety and precision and can also correct astigmatism to provide clearer vision without glasses.
Laser use in cataract surgery is increasing, including use as a tool to increase precision and safety.
New technologies for removal of softer cataracts offer advantages over traditional methods
These statistics on eye care and vision should put your health needs into perspective. Detroit, MI doctor William Goldstein, MD provides numbers, facts, and figures for context.
The most modern technique for cataract surgery is laser cataract surgery with phakoemulsification. This technique is the easiest on the eye, and most precise.
Laser cataract surgery requires lens implantation, and the newer lens implants can provide near and reading vision. One type of implant that can accomplish this is the Crystalens Accomodating IOL.
New technology for lens implant (IOL) calculations is available to ensure that patients will be more independent of glasses after laser cataract surgery
Lens Implants can be placed in one eye with great results. Premium IOL's such as the Crystalens can be very successful in freeing patients from glasses.
Complications of cataract surgery can sometimes be avoided by using a special stain on the membrane surrounding the cataract.
Secondary cataracts after the original cataract surgery are fairly common. They can be treated with YAG laser instead of actual surgery.
