Femtosecond Laser Assisted cataract surgery is an advanced surgical option now available to patients during cataract surgery. Dr. Carlson utilizes the Lensar® Laser System at the Phillips Eye Institute to perform a customized cataract procedure. Using laser technology creates incisions more precisely and softens the cataract lens decreasing post-perative healing time and increasing safety. The unique 3-D imaging systems built into femtosecond lasers provide surgeons with a reconstructed view of your eye to help plan a customized treatment for the removal of your cataract.
