Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery, or FLACS, replaces many of the steps during cataract surgery that require a blade and softens the cataract, allowing for an easier and smoother removal.
The Femto LDV femtosecond laser system offers higher repetition rate of the laser beam for faster procedures, low energy per laser pulse for gentler treatments, and overlapping laser spots for high precision and predictability.
For patients with cataracts in both eyes, a Monofocal Intraocular Lenses may provide the most benefit. A monofocal lens is an intraocular lens with a fixed focus for one distance which are for near focus, mid-distance focus, or distant focus.
Toric lenses are premium intraocular lenses (IOLs) that correct presbyopia as well as common refractive errors, enabling an expanded range of clear vision and a decreased need for eyeglasses after cataract surgery, compared with surgery performed with conventional monofocal IOLs.
Presbyopia is when your eyes gradually lose the ability to see things clearly up close. It is a normal part of aging. In fact, the term “presbyopia” comes from a Greek word which means “old eye.” You may start to notice presbyopia shortly after age 40.
Accommodating IOLs are a unique type of IOL primarily used for the treatment of cataracts, though they are more frequently being used to treat presbyopia. Unlike other IOLs, accommodating IOLs shift and adjust as your eye moves in order to provide focusing power for multiple distances.
