New York Cataract Surgeon Satish Modi, M.D., F.R.C.S. (C) commented on bladeless laser cataract surgery results and safety. “The results and safety of bladeless laser cataract surgery and lens implants has really had quite an impact on my patients,” remarked Dr. Modi of Seeta Eye Centers in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. “One of the most stressful and difficult situations for the patient and the eye surgeon alike, is performing cataract surgery and lens implantation on a one eyed patient as there is just no room for complications and the results simply have to be on the mark. Having now operated on a number of these patients with the Alcon® LenSx® Femtosecond Laser, I was thrilled at how comforted they were by the purported safety and precision of the laser, but we were all just ecstatic about the clarity of their vision the next day.”

Dr. Modi further explained, “When we remove the cloudy lens material of a cataract through a tiny 2.2 mm incision we must use a high speed ultrasonic probe or what is called a phacoemulsifier. This creates a great deal of heat as it acts as a small “jackhammer”, with fragments moving within the eye. With laser cataract surgery we avoid potential mishaps by using less energy as the femtosecond laser can and does fragment and break apart this hard core or nucleus-this in turn, allows me to remove the now "chopped up and softened" nucleus with less applied energy to the eye, and with less "chatter" from flying material within the eye.”
