Just as you have options when it comes to choosing the lens that you receive during cataract surgery, you also have the option of choosing the technology that’s used to perform the procedure. That means, with Dr. Temas recommendation, you have the choice between surgery performed by hand or with the assistance of laser technology. Either type of procedure can be effective when performed by a skilled surgeon, such as Dr. Temas, but laser-assisted cataract surgery procedures can be more predictable and precise, for certain cases. Laser-assisted cataract surgery technology can automate certain steps during the procedure with laser precision.
The LenSx® Laser system maps your eye, assisting in a cataract surgery that’s unique to you.
If you opt for laser cataract surgery, Dr. Temas may operate using theLenSx® Laser, which offers a level of accuracy exceeding that of manual surgery methods. The LenSx® Laser first images your eye to plan a procedure that’s unique to you. A bladeless, computer-controlled laser then helps surgeons perform your surgery with exacting, individualized precision not attainable with traditional surgical methods.
I couldn't have asked for better treatment or outcome. The staff at both your office and the surgical center are superior by every measure. They are professional, knowledgeable and respectful of all patients. It was almost a fun experience! Although the cataracts in both eyes had impaired my vision, the thought of eye surgery was scary. But - my fears were all for "naught" - it was such a quick, PAINLESS procedure, I wondered why I had waited so long!
