Every year, millions of Americans have cataract surgery. The goal of the surgery is to remove a cloudy natural lens and replace it with an intraocular lens (IOL) to improve vision. During cataract surgery, the cloudy lens is broken into tiny pieces and then the surgeon removes the pieces. Traditionally, a surgeon would use metal knives and blades in order to manually make the incisions needed for this process. Now, however, Dr. Baharozian can offer you a ‘bladeless’ procedure, which is assisted by laser technology.
Laser-assisted cataract surgery offers customization to each patient with predictable and enhanced precision. The traditional ‘manual’ part of the procedure is now preformed by a laser. The technology behind the laser captures high-resolution images of your eye, giving precise measurements and data that assist Dr. Baharozian in planning and performing a procedure to exacting specifications.
The benefits of Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery over traditional cataract surgery are:
- A bladeless procedure that is personalized to your eyes
- Precise, reproducible performance and results
- Enhanced control and efficiency
- A CUSTOM procedure planned and performed by your surgeon for YOU
