Cataract & Refractive Surgeon Satish Modi, M.D. just returned from the 2013 American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) where he was speaking and teaching other cataract surgeons about bladeless laser cataract surgery which he has been performing at Seeta Eye centers and the Dutchess Ambulatory Surgery Center in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. for more than a year. “A year ago there was considerable patient interest in laser cataract surgery. However today after a year of seeing the results friends and relative experience patients are routinely initiating the request that we perform their cataract surgery with the laser rather than the manual technique,” commented Dr. Modi. “Patients really do appreciate that cataract surgery is a technically complex and requires considerable surgical skill for a number of steps that are typically performed manually. The Alcon® LenSx® Femtosecond Laser helps me deliver a number of these skill intensive steps in a safe, more precise and even gentler eye surgery,” he further explained.
“While I regularly host eye surgeons in our practice who want to learn more about laser cataract surgery, the opportunity to speak and share my experiences at the ASCRS meeting in San Francisco with so many cataract surgeons from all over, was really thrilling,” summarized Dr. Modi.
