We can help you ReLACS in a FEMTOSECOND!

We are thrilled to share with you that we are now offering laser assisted cataract surgery! We feel using a laser to perform important elements of a cataract surgery represents a truly significant advance in the field of cataract surgery.

The official name of our cataract surgery laser is the LenSx. The LenSx is what is known as a femtosecond laser.

The LenSx femtosecond laser performs 4 very key aspects of the cataract surgery:

It creates the incisions
It creates an exquisite opening to give us access to the cataract
It pre-divides the cataract which makes it easier and faster to remove
It addresses the refractive condition of the eye

When you put all four of those together, you create the name of the cataract surgery we now perform… ReLACS. That is an acronym for:

Refractive Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery

We are so excited about ReLACS and the LenSx simply because we feel the femtosecond laser can perform those four aspects of a cataract surgery better than any human including us!  We say that because the human hand cannot match the precision, accuracy, or reproducibility of the femtosecond laser. And the LenSx offers us real-time, highly sophisticated imaging and diagnostics of the eye that have never been available before at the actual time of the cataract surgery.

We truly feel that doing the ReLACS with the LenSx is a better way to do cataract surgery than what we traditionally have and we are exceedingly proud to offer it to you.
