Laser cataract surgery can be broken down into the removal of the cataract and replacing the cataract with an advanced lens. This is deconstructed below in the 2 steps; step one is the use of a laser to access the capsule that the natural lens sits in and remove the cataract. Step Two is to replace the cataract lens with a new advanced lens.
A critical part of step 1 is creating a capsulotomy or opening the capsule which contains the cataract. In laser cataract surgery, we use the latest CAPSULaser to make the incision as opposed to the manual technique administered within standard cataracts. This method is more precise and has higher repeatability too.
The CAPSULaser also uses modern intraocular lens technology designed for laser cataract surgery, therefore, increasing predictability and range for the patient’s visual outcomes. The implants are also more stable compared to standard cataract surgery implants.
The specific type of lens that will best suit you depends on your vision needs and pre-operative testing.
At your assessment, we conduct extensive analysis to determine which lens will meet your lifestyle requirements. Sometimes after cataract surgery, the eye needs laser vision correction to fine-tune the focus. Using LASIK and SmartSurface technology, we can refine the focus of your eye and the quality of your vision following surgery.
