Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery

Published on: March 2, 2013 | By: Dr. Jeff Goodhew

Thanks to Peter S. from the Bochner Eye Institute for coming to talk to us about new advances in cataract surgery. Bochner Eye Institute is now using a femto-second laser to aid in cataract surgery. The laser provides two main advantages. The first is that it allows for cleaner and more precise incisions. Secondly it reduces the amount of energy required to break apart the cataract inside the eye. Both of these are major advancements forward in the area of cataract surgery. We look forward to helping our patients access this exciting new technology.
