Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery Technology
CATALYS® Precision Laser System
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 CATALYSR Precision Laser System is the world’s most sophisticated laser cataract surgery system, providing a highly customized, more accurate and gentle treatment for cataracts.
Customization with 3D Imaging
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.
May Decrease Need for Glasses
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 in the cornea and a specific lens implant type.
