A More Precise & Accurate Cataract Removal

Laser Cataract Surgery Overview

 Laser cataract surgery, or laser assisted cataract surgery, utilizes similar technology that is used in LASIK. Using special imaging techniques, a 3D image of your eye is created. This gives your Louisiana Eye & Laser doctor a surgical plan for the most precise and accurate procedure. Using this image as a map, a laser is makes precise incisions in the cornea and breaks up the cloudy lens. This allows for an easier and gentler cataract removal. As with traditional cataract surgery, a special liquid and self-sealer is used around the incision, reducing or eliminating the need for stitches.

Most patients who undergo laser cataract surgery elect to have a premium lens implant instead of a traditional intraocular lens implant. This typically gives patients the freedom from glasses and contacts for most activities.
