Cataracts are the leading cause of reversible vision loss in the United States. Over three million cataract procedures are performed each year in this country. While the surgery has come a long way, new technologies continue to make the procedure more precise, with even better outcomes.
Until recently, surgeons have been limited to handheld instruments and blades to access the cataract and correct astigmatism. With the traditional bladed cataract surgery, we are able to improve vision and often help patients see more clearly. However, less than 50% of patients with traditional surgery see well enough to retire their glasses.
Clarus Eye Centre, announce the arrival of the femtosecond laser designed to enhance an already successful cataract procedure. The Catalys Precision Laser System helps reduce the need for the hand-held instruments. With unparalleled precision, the laser can create very accurate incisions in the cornea, correcting astigmatism to a degree not seen with hand-held instruments. In addition, the laser can open the cataract and then pre-soften the lens prior to its removal. The softening allows for a more gentle removal of the cataract, speeding recovery and enhancing the patient experience and outcomes.
