Many of the steps of cataract surgery that are traditionally performed using handheld instruments can now be completed using the precision of a laser. The CATALYS® Precision Laser System is the world’s most sophisticated laser cataract surgery system, providing a highly customized, more accurate and gentle treatment for cataracts.
Like a fingerprint, every eye has a unique size and shape. Prior to treatment, CATALYS® images your eye and makes precise 3D maps of relevant structures. This enables us to create a tailored treatment plan that is customized for your eye.
We can use CATALYS® to create a perfectly sized, shaped and centered circular opening to access and remove the cataract. This precise incision helps us place the new artificial lens exactly where intended. Clinical studies have shown that this opening is approximately 10 times more accurate when performed with CATALYS® than what is achievable by hand.
If you desire to see well without glasses or contacts after surgery, ask us about your options. We may recommend a tailored treatment that could include precise CATALYS® laser incisions to reshape your cornea, combined with the latest generation intraocular lens implant.
At Eastside Eye Physicians, we are excited to be one of the first providers of the Light Adjustable Lens™ from RXSight® in Michigan. Now your vision can be fine-tuned and optimized to your desire AFTER your cataract surgery. Adjustability takes cataract surgery to the next level by giving you a lens customized specifically for your eyes.
Customization is done 2-4 weeks after the sceond eye surgery is completed, using a special UV light device. During this post-operative time period, special UV eyewear must be worn by the patients, and will be provided (see video above).
