What is LenSX® Femtosecond Laser?
As an experienced cataract surgeon, Dr. Horn specializes in traditional surgery and laser-based techniques for the condition. For his patients, he has chosen the LenSX® femtosecond laser to increase the precision with which the procedure is performed.
Benefits of LenSX® Femtosecond Laser
Compared to traditional cataract surgery, LenSX® allows Dr. Horn to perform the procedure with a greater level of precision and accuracy. This produces greater reliability in the expected outcomes of the procedure. The system also allows Dr. Horn to automate specific aspects of the procedure, so your surgery time may be shorter when compared to surgery that is performed by hand.
What Should I Expect from LenSX® Femtosecond Laser?
The LenSX® system performs cataract surgery in two steps. The first step involves making a digital map of your eye so that the surgery can be customized to the unique features of your eyes. During the second step, the correction to the eye is performed using a computer-controlled laser.
Is LenSX® Femtosecond Laser Right for Me?
Most patients with cataracts can choose between surgery that is performed by hand and surgery that is performed using the LenSX® femtosecond laser. The best way to find out which option is best for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Horn.
