While traditional cataract surgery still offers Poughkeepsie & Yorktown Heights patients remarkably effective results for the treatment of cataracts, laser cataract surgery is an excellent option that not only produces successful results but does so with more predictability, increased safety and advanced efficiency. More importantly it also enhances your vision by treating and correcting mild astigmatism.
If you would like to find out more about how laser cataract surgery can benefit you, please call our Poughkeepsie & Yorktown Heights ophthalmology practice at (845) EYE-CARE today.
Benefits of Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery
While we do provide traditional cataract surgery for the right candidates, our laser eye surgeons take tremendous pride in offering our ophthalmology patients the most advanced laser cataract surgery method available.
Using the state-of-the-art LenSx® femtosecond laser system, our laser eye surgeons can provide superior performance and more predictable results for cataract surgery patients.
The main benefits of bladeless cataract surgery include:
- Improved micro surgical precision and accuracy for incisions
- Increased safety
- More predictable results
- More efficient recovery time
- Capability for simultaneous astigmatism correction
Though laser cataract surgery does require a greater financial investment than our traditional method, the additional costs are well worth the benefits.
Our Laser Cataract Surgery Procedure
Typically our laser cataract surgery procedure is performed in the comfort and convenience of the accredited Dutchess Ambulatory Surgical Center, a multi-specialty facility that is fully-equipped with the latest technology available and carefully staffed with highly skilled professionals.
Prior to your surgery you will be given an eye drop anesthetic and dilating drops which will facilitate a virtually painless procedure.
When we begin your bladeless cataract surgery, our laser eye surgeons will use the LenSx® laser to perform the first four steps, and then afterward we will complete your cataract removal in the operating room.
Depending on your individual needs, you should be able to resume your normal activities with noticeable visual improvement just a couple of days after surgery.
Our laser eye surgeons can answer specific questions about our bladeless approach to cataract surgery during your appointment.
