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-operative 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.
Dr. Carlson performs all of his cataract procedures at the Phillips Eye Institute where he uses a Lensar Laser System to perform femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery. The benefits of using this particular laser include:
Our investment in the Lenstar LS 900, the first optical biometer on the market to provide accurate measurement of all structures of the entire eye – from cornea to retina – is key to achieving optimal IOL prediction accuracy in surgery. By utilizing this state of the art equipment, we are able to achieve highly accurate refractive outcomes for all cataract patients including standard and premium IOL’s as well as previous laser vision correction patients.
